The Feather by ~SnowDwarf
"Hope is the thing with feathers -That perches in the soul-And sings the tune--without the words-And never stops at all." ~ Emily Dickinson
"Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time." ~ Jean Paul
"It is not only fine feathers that make fine birds." ~ Aesop
Remember Dumbo and the magic feather. It is a Disney movie about an elephant with huge ears. Timothy Mouse thinks with those ears, Dumbo could fly. He thinks he can make this elephant famous. The next great act in his circus. Dumbo doesn't doesn't believe, until a crow gives him a magic feather. And he does, he flies. Do you have a magic feather?
