One night, the Moon was shining quietly in the sky. From high above, she suddenly started noticing that the people on Earth looked very colourful and different from each other. She realised that this was because they all wore beautiful clothes!
She thought, ‘0, I wish I could also have a nice cloak made from the colours of the rainbow!’
As morning drew near, the Sun came up. It was time for the Moon to sleep. But, she went to her Mother and said, “Dear Mother, people look beautiful in colourful clothes. How I wish to have a colourful cloak for myself, too! Will you please make one for me?”
The Moon’s Mother smiled at her and said, “My dear child, I would love to make a cloak for you but how can I do so? Right now you have a new body but soon you will start increasing in size and finally, become bigger. Because of your changing size, you will not fit into anything I make for you.”
The Moon, sadly, agreed with her Mother. She, then, went to bed till the arrival of night.
It is always good to think about our wishes from a practical point of view.
