Silver Breasted Broadbill

Peter Pan J.M.Barrie
Pan, who and what art thou?" he cried huskily.
"I'm youth, I'm joy," Peter answered at a venture, "I'm a little bird that has broken out of
the egg.”   

“The moment a little boy is concerned with which is a jay and which is a sparrow, he can no longer see the birds or hear them sing.”
Eric Berne
Admiring Cormorants

How can a bird that is born of joy
Sit in a cage and sing ?
How can a child when fears annoy,
But droop his tender wing,
And forget his youthful spring?
William Blake
