The Statue

The Statue

“The little less 
and how much
it is”—James R. Barrie
“Peter Pan” directions

Peter grows up—
But the Peter Pan statue
Stays just the same

Never pinched—
Or short of money
In this Land of Queens

A most ordinary—
Manner & naturalness
Must be portrayed

No extravagance—
No theatric mannerisms
No overplaying unnaturally

No matter how queer—
The Statue letting Peter 
Speak for himself
