I like this poem:

“Hope” is the thing with feathers - (314) BY EMILY DICKINSON

“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.

I saw this brilliant lecture a while back on a really mind-blowing idea...[YouTube removed the video on account of a copyright claim - but it's back now!].

This is pretty good too, about the Big Bagel in the Sky - I love the typical American self-effacement at the end :)...
