It was dark in the forest.
Tiny, fluffy mouse looked outside.
“Mum, it’s so dark.”
“Yes, my dear. The sun is gone.”
She squinted her eyes.
“It must be dark for the neighbors, too, mama.”
“Yes, my dear, it’s dark for the neighbors too.”
A few minutes later, she lighted a candle and put it on the window sill. Her mother shook her head.
“That candle can’t light the dark forest, dear.”
“No, mama, but when the neighbors look outside, it will not be so dark for them.”
As the night passed, candle after candle appeared throughout the forest.
When next morning fluffy mouse looked outside,
the forest was no longer dark,
but a sea of shining stars.
