Father Moose 01:10
Father Moose was a painter enchanter. He held brushes and wands in each of his antlers. When tired, he tried to look skyward. Yet admired by herd for looking landward. His candor and word could find the ant in the amber. He said: “Smallness is a partner to grandeur. Fear is an anchor for anger. Sadness is standard for pampered. To control your temper when it exists as an ember is better than being remembered.” He named his boomerang ‘Slander.’ He said: “Make envy your only enemy. Make time for banter. Wisdom can turn your eyes to a lantern. No law is an answer. Merely hints. Wise calf learns from another's experience.”
Color Wheel 01:36
Father Moose gathered blueberries, goji berries and pollen from bees' colonies, then peeled birch bark, in sheets, off fallen trees. Home with fold, he told the foals, "In these three bowls, red, yellow and blue: The primary colors. They combine to create all the others!" Nestled into place, pestled into paste. Added water. Painted faces. Tasted! Father phrased, "Blue and yellow make green. Blue and red make purple. Red and yellow make orange. Color wheel's a circle." Crafted brushes from bamboos and mane hairs. After, Father Moose inhaled, shared, "A circle, flat, is a sphere, solid. Triangle transforms to pyramid. Six squares fix their sides to cube. Rectangle wraps round two circle caps, a tube. Tubes, hollow cylinders, fill in your body regions. Cubes cross with pyramids to form polyhedrons. Pyramid crossed with sphere's a cone. The only thing we have to fear is fear alone." Calves painted hooves to make stamps and snoozed on laps of Great Gramps.
Great Gramps breaks camp. Makes damp my eye and breath. At first my chest'll burst. Death's the worst. Life's the best! LIFE'S THE BEST! We place in Quicksand Lake. She says, "I do take." He sinks. Surface dip looks like a snake. Go home and raise a stink! We think life's the best. Life's The Best! LIFE'S THE BEST! On Earth, we're her guest. I clear Grandpa's rest and redress it as a nest. My grandson just had a son. Babies rule! Life's the best. Life's The Best! life's ThE BEST! Let's jump on trampoline to see what Grandpa's seen! And we'll scream LIIFEE'S THEE BESSTT!!!!
