  The dwarf said to the gnome,

" I am taller than you."

 

The gnome said to the dwarf,

" I am smarter than you."

 

The dwarf looked down and said

" Then teach yourself to grow."

 

The gnome looked up and said

" I do not need to,

I only have to wait for you to fall."

 

The dwarf laughed, secretly considering his balance and exclaimed,

" My foothold is firm !"

 

The gnome asked,

" Are you so sure?"

 

The dwarf, confused, questioned his hidden thoughts and retorted,

"Quite sure indeed!"

 

The gnome replied,

"Then jump! As high as you can."

 

The dwarf delighted in this challenge and jumped,

"Humph! Did you see that?"

 

The gnome replied,

"Yes. Yes, I did. You did exactly what I told you to do."

 

The dwarf suddenly felt angered,

" I am still taller than you."

 

The gnome ended it;

" If my words can lift you,

then imagine if you stood on my shoulders

for I am no giant, but I would carry you

into the future

higher."

 

The dwarf knelt. 

The gnome bowed.

Equal with love.
