The Birth of the Stars

A myth submitted to the site by Aseel Al Jabal


Many, many moons ago there was a wizard who pulled a black heavy curtain across the sky at night and pulled it back open at sunrise.

There were some artists who had sticks that had wooden carved animals on them and lit torches on the wall. People set there stripy tents and peeked through the door to watch the show.

Then the artists had a spectacular idea.They thought it would be a good idea to make there show on the curtain of the sky.

Everybody came to see the show but not only the people animals watched too. Mice went up on tree branches to watch. All the animals in the country was watching and so did tortoises who never looked above there nose so they lay on there backs to watch the show.

When they finished, a little moth came nibbling a hole through the black curtain, but the wizard flicked his finger and the moth fell down. The little moth kept on nibbling until he saw the first shining star. Then the little moth called all his friends and they kept on nibbling until the whole sky was shining with stars.

People came out of there houses to come and see.Then the wizard pulled the nibbled curtain and behind it were silver trees ,silver streams and silver bushes.

So the artists had no where to do there show but they did not mind. When the wizard saw how happy all the people were he did not mind either.
