Why do the Stars Twinkle?

Why do the Stars twinkle?
or
Dancing Panthers

One summer’s night, a little girl and her grandfather went up to the mountain. The little girl looked up to the sky and saw the stars and sang

Twinkle, twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
Twinkle, Twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are.

Her grandfather glanced down at her beaming, bright-lit face and said; those may not be stars. The little girl gazed into her grandfather’s deep dull eyes and asked; what on earth do you mean, grandpa? Grandfather now half laughing replied; those may be the dancing black Panthers.The little girl said; but Grandpa, how did they get there?Grandfather said; sit down my child. I can see it is going to be a very long night. The little girl looked around for a comfortable place for them to sit. She found a large rock with even a larger one beside it then she patted her hand for her grandfather to take  a seat beside her.
This is the tale he told.
