Veil after veil of thin dusky gauze is lifted, and by degrees the forms and colours of things are restored to them, and we watch the dawn remaking the world in its antique pattern.
Oscar Wilde, The Picture of Dorian Gray

And in that very moment, away behind in some far corner of the city, a cock crowed. Shrill and clear he crowed reckoning nothing of wizardry or war, welcoming only the morning that in the sky far above the shadows of death was coming with the dawn.
J.R.R. Tolkien, The Return of the King

Though I am old with wandering
Through hollow lands and hilly lands,
I will find out where she has gone,
And kiss her lips and take her hands;
And walk among long dappled grass,
And pluck till time and times are done,
The silver apples of the moon,
The golden apples of the sun.
W. B. Yeats, The Song of Wandering Aengus

John, your wonderful render do me think of the, in my country famous Fabeltjeskrant ('The Fables Newspaper'), a Dutch children's television series that was broadcast from 1968 until 1989.
Because the series had the intention to support the education of children by telling fables full of wisdom, it hadn't the high philosophic level as the quotes/poem in your narrative.
Because the viewers of that time all have the 'middle age', I think however that they would understand and appreciate your narrative now. The latter for your music links as well.
Very well done again!

If you think you can't accept something, try to change it. But if this doesn't work, don't be frustrated, but give it later another try. The one who perseveres wins! Please CLICK HERE to see my journal! Feel free to save my images or to add them to your favorites.

Pure joy in viewing your talent. Original and thought provoking art and music that brings out emotions that provide us with the gifts that people can give to each other.

No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.

This could be a mesmerizing illustration in a world class children*s book. Love it, John!
