“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.”
