What do you think of that?
A bird in love with a cat.
This picture you see,
Is as true as can be;
Puss comes every day
At the risk of a fall,
To visit her friend
On the top of the wall;
For hours together
They’ll romp in this way,
Then the cat will go home,
And the bird fly away.

“Since you are so kind as to think of me, dear father,” answered Beauty, “I should like to have you bring me a rose, for we have none in our garden.”
It was not that Beauty cared so much for a rose, but she did not want it to look as if she were trying to be better than her sisters, who would have said she refused only to be praised.
From the story “Beauty and The Beast”
