BOY AND THE APPLE TREE
Long ago there was a big apple
tree
The tree loved a little boy very much. The boy
loved to come there and play around it everyday.
He climbed the treetop
Ate the apples
Take a nap under the shadow
He loved the tree so the tree was
happy
Time went by…The tree said come
and play around me
The boy said ”I am no longer a kid, I don’t play
around the tree. I want toys. I need money to but
toys
Tree replied ”Sorry, I don’t have money but you
can collect my apples and sell them. So you will
have money. The boy was so excited. He gathered
all the apples from tree and left the tree. The tree
was happy.
The boy never came back after
picking up apples. The tree was
very sad.
One day the boy who turned into a man returned
and the tree was excited “Come and play around
me ”Said the tree.
I have no time to play. I have to work for my family.
We need a house for shelter. Can you help me??
Tree said ’”Sorry, I don’t have any house but you
can chop off my branches to build house.”
So the man cut off all the branches of the
tree and left away.
The tree was glad to see him happy but the man
never came back since this. Again the tree was
lonely and very sad.
One hot summer day the man returned and the
tree was delighted, ”Come and play around me”
The tree said
“I am getting old. I want to go sailing to relax
myself. Can you give me a boat?? ”said the man.
“Use my trunk to build your boat. ”The tree
said. ”You can sail far away and be happy”
So the man cut the trunk to make a boat. He
went for sailing and never came back.
Finally the man returned after many years, ”Sorry,
my boy, but I do not have anything for you any
more.. No more apples for you ”The tree said .”No
problem, I don’t have teeth to bite.” The man
replied.
“No more trunk for you to climb on. ”The tree
said. :I am too old for that now.” said the
man
“I can’t give you anything….only left are my dying
roots” said the tree .”I don’t need much now, just a
place to rest. I am tired. ”said the man.
“Good!! Old tree roots are the best
place to lean on and rest. Come, sit
down with me and rest.”
The man sat down and the tree
was glad and smiled with tears….
Everybody has
an apple tree in his life.

No matter how busy you are,

parents….
