Once there was a man who could not find the new moon in the sky, no matter how hard he tried. He spent hours standing in a field, staring upward at the heavens. People tried to help him, but it was no use.
"Look!" shouted a friend in frustration. "It's right there! Can you not see it?"
"No, I do not see it." The man shook his head sadly. "I see no new moon. Only the same old moon that has been up there for years and years."
