Hope–like a sinew–
Stretches thin,
Yet still is there.
And if you break it,
To repair,
Is the hardest thing of all.

Hope–like a sparrow–
Is elusive,
Light as air.
For if you catch it,
To compare,
The greatest thrill of all.

Hope–like a spider–
Weaves a web,
Easy to tear.
Catching the songbirds–
Love and Care,
Sing the sweetest song of all.
