The Boy and Apple Tree
The beautiful story of a boy and apple tree with a humor touch
A long time ago, there was a huge tree, it loved the little boy very much, the boy loved to come and play around it everyday. He cimbed to the tree top, ate apples, take a nap under the shadow. He loved the tree and the tree was happy.
Time went on
One day the boy came to the tree the tree said " Come and play with me"
Boy said " Iam no longer a kid, i do not play around tree anymore" " i want toys and i need money to buy them"
Tree said " Sorry, but i do not have money... but you can pick all my apples and sell them, so you will have money.
The boy was so excicted, he grabbed all the apples on the tree and left happily. The tree was happy
The boy never came back after picking the apples again the tree was sad
One day the boy who now turned into a man returned and the tree was excited. "Come and play with me " tree said
"I dont have time to play . I have to work for my family. We need a house for shelter. Can you help me?" Man said
Tree said " Sorry i do not have any house but you can chop off my branches to build your house."
So the man cut all the branches of the tree and left happily.
The tree was glad to see him happy but the man never came back after then.
The tree was lonely and sad again.
On a hot summer day, the man returned the tree was delighted. " Come play with me" the Tree said.
" Iam getting old, i want to go sailing to relax myself. can u give me a boat?" the man said.
" Use my trunk to make make your boat and you can sail for ever and be happy" the tree said.
So the man cut the trunk to make a boat. He went sailing and never showedup for long time.
Finally the man returned after many years.
" Sorry my boy, i do not have anything for you anymore. No more apples for you" Tree said
" No problem i do not have teeth to bite" the man replied.
" No more trunk to climb on" Tree said
" Iam too old for that now " the man said
" I really cannot give you anything, the only thing left is the dying roots" the tree said with tears"
" I do not need much now, just a place to rest. Iam tired after all these years" the man replied
" Good! Old tree roots are the best place to lean and rest, come sit down with me and rest" said the tree
The man sat down and tree was glad and smiled with tears......
