Wendy Gets Wise

Then Wendy saw the shadow on the floor, looking so draggled, and she was frightfully sorry for Peter. “How awful!” she said, but she could not help smiling when she saw that he had been trying to stick it on with soap. How exactly like a boy!

Fortunately she knew at once what to do. “It must be sewn on,” she said, just a little patronisingly. ~J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan

Wendy Gets Wise

Not in the business of
sewing on shadows
gonna tend my own garden
gonna pluck my own rose.
