The Little White Bird

by J.M.Barrie

 

Chapter1- David and I Set Forth Upon A Journey

 

Sometimes the little boy who calls me father bings me an invitation from his mother:"I shall be so pleased if you will come and see me." and I always reply in some such words as these :"Dear madam,I decline." And if David asks why I decline,I explain that it is because I have no desire to meet the woman.

 

"Come this time ,father,"he urged lately,"for it is her birthday,and she is twenty-six,"which is so great an age to David, that I think he fears she cannot last much longer.

 

"Twenty-six, is she ,David?"I replied ."Tell her I said she look more."

 

I had my delicious dream that night .I deamt that I too was twenty-six ,which was a long time ago,and that I took train to a place called my home,whose whereabouts I see not in my waking hours,and we went away together.She met me in no ecstasy of emotion,nor was I surprised to find her there;it was as if we had been married for years and parted for a day. I like to think that I gave her some of the things to carry.

 

Were I to tell my delightful dream to David's mother,to whom I have never in my life addressed one word,she would droop her head and raise it bravely,to imply that I make her very sad but very proud,and she would be wishful to lend me her absurd little pocket handkerchief.And then had I the heart ,I might make a disclosure that would startle her,for it is not the face of David's mother that I see in my dreams.

 

 

mabe it's the end in my blog.It's long and I don't think I can write it down ,and It's on the internet,if you want to see the other chapter you can go to http://www.literature.org/authors/barrie-james-matthew/the-little-white-bird/

 

maybe I will start a new short story ,copy from a handbook.
