Lady On The Moon



"Momma, what are those dark spots on the moon?"

"That is an old lady spinning yarn, my little boy."

"Momma, why is the old lady spinning yarn?"

"So that she can knit dreams for you every night."

"Come on Momma," said five years old Jack giggling and playfully smacking his tiny forehead with his right hand palm, "don't you know this - there is no lady on the moon, those dark spots are hills and craters."
