The Tiger said to the Star,
What is it like up in the clouds?

It is like you are floating, said the Star.

I like floating, dreams the Tiger.

So do I. I love floating.

Oh, Star, can you show me how to fly?

No, no, my Tiger, I can’t show you how to fly.

But why, said the Tiger to the Star.

Because, silly Tiger, you are not a Star,
And you never will be.

    There is something freeing in knowing that there are some things one cannot be. This has a wonderful fairy tale feeling!
