White Bird

“A book is a delicate friend,
a white bird,
an exquisite being, afraid of water…
Darling things! Afraid of water
of fire
they shiver in the wind.
Clumsy, crude human fingers leave bruises on them
that’ll never fade!
Never!

Tatyana Tolstaya
(Russian writer)

My daughter brought this quote to my attention. Isn’t it delightful?
