Thanks for your response to my post.

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 chilliest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity
It asked a crumb of me.

Explicit meaning

Hope permanently lives in our souls. There it sings, never stopping in its quest to inspire.

Implicit meaning

Our hopes sustain us while we are going through the hardest conditions in life.

Is it correct what I wrote about the implicit and explicit meaning of the poem?

+1

No, the poem is explicitly about a bird and a storm. All your interpretation is implicit.

Explicit meaning

A bird sings a wordless song through out its life. It sings the sweetest in a powerful storm.

Is it fine now? Secondly, please tell me which one of the two interpretations in the original post is a better implicit meaning of the poem?

Thanks.

sundarnazExplicit meaning: A bird sings a wordless song through out its life. It sings the sweetest in a powerful storm. Is it fine now?

Yes, but it could be more accurate:

A bird sings sweetly, even in storms, and never asks for anything in return.

sundarnazplease tell me which one of the two interpretations in the original post is a better implicit meaning of the poem?

Hope sustains us even through the hardest conditions in life.

I can't think you enough.
