THE BOULDER AND THE FEATHER

One sunny day in May on a big green mountain lay a big grumpy boulder
and a colorful bird feather.
A cool breeze blew.
It made the feather do a little dance in the air.
"Don't be so light and playful," said the boulder in a harsh voice.
"Why shouldn't I?" said the feather.  "It's such a lovely day!"
"Because it's too hot!"
"What?"
"I said it's too hot for light and playful!"
"Why are you yelling?  I have never heard such a yell for no reason."
"I don't like light and playful!!"
"Well, I love it!"
"All right, I've had enough of you.  I'm going to run you over"
And with that, the boulder swooped over to where the feather was lying,
but a breeze blew and it made the feather go up in the air.
And the boulder fell right off the mountain.
And that was the end of the grumpy boulder.
THE END
