Now, when she shone night after night, she looked forward to seeing the humans and their clothes. It did not take long before the moon wished to have such clothes as well. “It would be nice, if I too could have some beautiful clothes,” she would wish. Every night, she observed the humans, seeing how they were all different from each other and how great and colorful the earth looked because of them.

Finally, one day the moon decides to have a talk with her mother about getting her clothes. As the night started fading out and the sun came out towards the morning, the moon tells her mother, “I too want clothes similar to the humans bright and colorful! A cloak with beautiful rainbow colors of the rainbow!” You may also like to read, Tale Of The Sun And The Moon.

The mother listened to her daughter’s wishes patiently. “Mother, oh my dear mother, will you please get me a rainbow colored cloak? Please, mother. I really want one. I do!” the moon begged.

Then, the mother finally tells her daughter, “My sweet child, I wish I could make one for you. But it is not possible.” Moon becomes extremely sad and repeats, “But I want one!” The mother then explains, “You see, your shape is not constant. It changes incessantly, every day. Even if I do make one for you, it won’t fit you the next day.” Also, read The Rabbit In The Moon.

The moon had no choice but to accept the truth and say, “I… I understand that you’re right mother.” That day, a sad moon went back to her bed, awaiting the night to come. But eventually, she came to realize her own beauty and was happy with herself. After that day, the moon never asked for a rainbow colored cloak, for she knew her own light was prettier than any other rainbow.
