Countless stars

“There really are too many stars to count,”

lamented fox after spending

what seemed like an eternity

with his head held back

staring up to the heavens.

“Don’t worry,” replied owl

“We do not need to know to exactness.

Only to realise that the number

is immense and unending.”

Fox sighed and then, hung is head

at what he felt to be defeat

at his unfulfilled task.

“Do not fret, fox” said owl

trying to comfort his old friend.

“Come now. Let us break our fast together.

The sun is rising, and the stars

will disappear from our sight

until the evening stands tall again,

and the infinite universe

is revealed to us once more.”
