Alphabetarion # Magpie | Colin Thiele, 1974


“A magpie can be happy or sad: sometimes so happy that he sits on a high, high gum tree
and rolls the sunrise around in his throat like beads of pink sunlight; and sometimes
so sad that you would expect the tears to drip off his beak.
This magpie was like that.”

Colin Thiele, Magpie Island, 1974
