The story is about friendship and what makes it to happen between two very different people. It is a poetic dialogue between a musician and a cricket. They both talk about why and when they sing and reveal their different feelings in between.  At the end they know that, apart from being so different from each other, they still can be good friends because of all those many other things in common.
