"Paradise of Birds"

Another musical interpretation of Anais Nin’s work, "Little Birds" is a light-hearted story about an exhibitionist who decorates his apartment with tropical birds in order to attract and then shock Parisian schoolgirls. However, when the moment to shock arrives, he finds that he is over-eager, and the final line of the story reads: "They all took fright, like little birds, and ran away."
