Birds and Sunrise

Whenever I get super nervous, my way of calming myself down is to read some poetry or music lyrics.  I have this pink piece of paper that I typed up a bunch of favorites on.  It's folder, torn, and tatered from being stuffed in a pocket of my purse for so long. I'd like to thank Mrs. Krcmar for introducing me to some of the classics back in highschool English, though I'd never thought I'd be using it like this.  I like classics by Emily Dickinson or lines from TS Elliot.  Then I'll go to lyrics from favorite songs.  My favorites seem to all center around birds or sunrises.  I chose this background in particular because of the beautiful hummingbird image.  Here are some of my favorites:

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune--without the words,
And never stops at all,
And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.
I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.
By Emily Dickinson

"I said to my soul, be still and wait without hope, for hope would be hope for the wrong thing; wait without love, for love would be love of the wrong thing; there is yet faith, but the faith and the love are all in the waiting. Wait without thought, for you are not ready for thought: So the darkness shall be the light, and the stillness the dancing.” by TS Elliot

I’ll tell you how the Sun rose; A ribbon at a time... by Emily Dickinson

“Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go.” by TS Elliot
"One, two, three like a bird I sing 'cause you've give me the most beautiful set of wings." from Last Dollar by Tim McGraw
Now I'm here, blinking in the sunlight,
Now I'm here, suddenly I see.
Standing here, It's all so clear,
I'm where I'm meant to be.

And at last I've seen the light,
And it's like the fog has lifted.
And at last I see the light,
And it's like the sky is new.

And it's warm and real and bright,
And the world has somehow shifted.
All at once, everything looks different,
Now that I see you.
from Tangled Soundtrack

I can see the wait there in your eyes
I can feel the thought in your sigh
Your knuckles are bruised from a losing fight
One way down a dead end street
Broken glass underneath your feet
You think the day won't break the sunless night

The sun will rise
The sun will rise
When you've lost your lights
The sun will rise
It'll be alright
I've been in stuck in a storm before
Felt the wind raging at my door
Couldn't move, couldn't breathe, Couldn't find a way out
Somehow my clouds disappeared, Somehow I made it here
Maybe just so you could hear me say

The sun will rise
The sun will rise
When you've lost your lights
The sun will rise
It'll be alright

Although you can't see it
So hard to believe it
Sometimes you just need a little faith
There's an answer to your prayer
And I swear that there'll come a day

When the sun will rise
The sun will rise
When you've lost your lights
The sun will rise
It'll be alright
from "The Sun Will Rise" by Kelly Clarkson
