    A wonderful story, beautifully told, especially with the part you added at the end.
    It reminds me a little about a story in one of Harold Courlander’s books. If I remember correctly it’s also about a lion who lords his strength over the other animals. But I think in that tale a rabbit fools him at the end. Now, of course, I’l have to go and look that story up.

    Thanks for this one.

  2. A good story. A thoughtful story. I’m going to get my grandkids to listen to it this weekend and see what they have to say about it.
