I like bats.

I wonder if there are any people who just don't fledge. I wonder if babies are born with wings after the fledging or if the wings appear later. I suppose if the wings sometimes indicate something about your personality they really can't appear until you're pretty much adult.

I wonder if your wings change if your personality changes.

Hmm.

Poem

I actually got three different poems from the pieces of that comment.

>>I wonder if there are any people who just don't fledge.<<

Yes. See "Secondary Feathers."

>>I wonder if babies are born with wings after the fledging or if the wings appear later. I suppose if the wings sometimes indicate something about your personality they really can't appear until you're pretty much adult.<<

After the Fledging, babies are born with wings. See "Eiderdown."

>>I wonder if your wings change if your personality changes.<<

Wings can change, although they don't always. (This was actually established in "Moulting.") See "Pluck."

All of the poems are thumbnailed in "Half-Price Poetry Sale, Part 2."
