The Everything-Maker snapped, "I’ve made your ears big, the better to listen and your eyes big, the better to see. I have made your neck short, the better to hold up your head. I’ve packed your head with wisdom. Now, use your wisdom and fly away before you lose what I‘ve given."
Owl was no longer a fool. He flew quickly away, pouting and hooting.
The Everything-Maker turned back to Rabbit, smiling gently. "Claws," he reminded himself.
But Rabbit was gone. Rabbit had hopped hurriedly away, too afraid of the Everything-Maker to stay for his fangs and claws.
Owl knew if he angered the Everything-Maker again, he would lose all that he had gained. Even today, Owl only comes out at night, when the Everything-Maker is fast asleep.
As for Rabbit, his claws and fangs are waiting. Perhaps someday .
