OUR FOLLY-THE BOY & THE APPLE TREE

A long time ago,there was a huge tree.It loved a little boy very much.The boy loved to come & play around it everyday.He climbed to the treetop,ate the apples.Take a nap under the shadow.He loved the tree,the tree was so happy.
Time went by.One day the boy came back to the tree.The tree said,come & play with me.The boy said,I’m no longer a boy.I dont play around a tree anymore.I want toys & money to buy them.
The tree said-sorry,but I dont have money,but u can pick all my apples & sell them.The boy grabbed all the apples on the tree & left happily.The tree was happy.The boy never came back.The tree was sad.
One day,the boy who now turned into a man returned & the tree was excited.Come & play with me-the tree said to which the boy replied-I dont have time to play.I have to work for my family.We need a house for shelter.Can u help me?.
Tree said-u can chop off my branches to build ur house.So the man cut all the branches of the tree & left happily.The tree was glad to see him happy but the man never came back since then.
One hot summer day,the man returned & the tree was delighted.Come & play with me-the tree said to which the man replied-I’m getting old.I want to go sailing to relax myself.Can u give me a boat?
Use my trunk to build ur boat.u can sail far away & be happy-the tree said.So the man cut the tree trunk to make a boat.he went sailing & never showed up for a long time.
Finally,the man returned after many years & said that I’m too old .I just need a place to rest.The tree said-Good!Old tree roots are the best place to lean on & rest.Come,come sit down with me & rest.The man sat down & the tree was glad & smiled with tears …….
