The lady looked longingly at the three white birds on the wall. One bird for one child, each flying away like so many flocks towards the south for an eternal winter.

One of John’s favourites is Humpe, a small troll with a gentle disposition and a longing for the light world of people. Humpe is almond-eyed, snub-nosed and red-haired like a little faun.
