Thank you, Terri-Anne, for this beautiful song!

How do you make a moment last forever
in my Fairytale. . . .

ONCE upon a time in the land of Joy and Beauty,
lived a golden-haired Princess. . .
She was sitting under a lovely weeping willow
tree, pondering what she perceived to be a
very profound problem! How do I make an
exceptional moment in time last forever????

Startled, she looked up to see a beautiful,
lavender Unicorn right in front of her and he
asked her what she was thinking about so
intently. She told him and he pranced around
a few times, snorted, stopped, and told her,
"Well I would just take it and hide it under my
feed where it couldn't be found."
Content with himself, he gracefully pranced off.
Hmmm, thought the Princess. . . . no, I don't think that would work,
so she continued to try to find the answer.

The ground started to tremble and she wondered what was happening;
looked up and saw a big brown bear standing in front of
her. What's your problem, sweet Princess?
His voice was gruff and rumbled like thunder and
the Princess backed up a little more against the tree.
She knew deep down he wouldn't hurt her, so she told him her problem.
He moved his huge head from side to side as if he could find the answer by doing so.
Ah Ha. . . I know. . . put that moment in a
big balloon and let it fly up into the sky!!!!
Satisfied with his answer, he rumbled off.

Princess thought for a moment and wasn't really satisfied
that would work either because
the beautiful moment would be gone into the
sky never to return!

Ohhhhhhh, she suddenly cried out, I've got it!!!
The only way to make a beautiful moment last forever . . . . it's so simple. . .
why didn't I see it all along. . . the answer is to
take that moment and hide it in my heart where it will live eternally!
Oh, I'm so joyful now. . . that reminds me of my
Memory Bouquet I keep in my bedroom - but that's
another story!
The End



Beauty and the Beast (French: La Belle et la Bête) is a fairy tale written by French novelist Gabrielle-Suzanne Barbot de Villeneuve and published in 1740 in La Jeune Américaine et les contes marins (The Young American and Marine Tales). Her lengthy version was abridged, rewritten, and published first by Jeanne-Marie Leprince de Beaumont in 1756 in Magasin des enfants (Children's Collection) and by Andrew Lang in the Blue Fairy Book of his Fairy Book series in 1889, to produce the version(s) most commonly retold. It was influenced by some earlier stories, such as "Cupid and Psyche", The Golden Ass written by Lucius Apuleius Madaurensis in the 2nd century AD, and "The Pig King", an Italian fairytale published by Giovanni Francesco Straparola in The Facetious Nights of Straparola.

Variants of the tale are known across Europe. In France, for example, Zémire and Azor is an operatic version of the story, written by Marmontel and composed by Grétry in 1771, which had enormous success well into the 19th century; it is based on the second version of the tale. Amour pour amour (Love for love), by Pierre-Claude Nivelle de La Chaussée, is a 1742 play based on de Villeneuve's version. According to researchers at universities in Durham and Lisbon, the story originated around 4,000 years ago.
