The Giving Tree by Shel SilversteinOnce there was a tree…. And he or she loved a little bit boy. And everyday the boy would comeand he would accumulate her leaves and make them into crownsand play king of the woodland. He would climb up her trunkand swing from her branches and devour apples. And they would play conceal-and-go-seek. And when he was once tired,he would sleep in her colour. And the boy adored the tree….Very much. And the tree was blissful. But time glided by. And the boy grew older. And the tree was once mainly on my own. Then at some point the boy got here to the treeand the tree said, "Come, Boy, come and climb up my trunk and swing from mybranches and consume apples and play in my colour and be pleased." "i’m too gigantic to climb and play" saidthe boy. "I wish to purchase things and have enjoyable.I need some cash." "i’m sorry," mentioned the tree, "but Ihave no money. I’ve simplest leaves and apples. Take my apples, Boy, and promote them inthe city. Then you are going to have money andyou will likely be joyful." And so the boy climbed up thetree and gathered her apples and carried them away. And the tree used to be glad. But the boy stayed away for a very long time….And the tree was once sad. After which sooner or later the boy came backand the tree shook with pleasure and she said, "Come, Boy, climb up my trunkand swing from my branches and be completely happy." "i’m too busy to climb bushes," mentioned the boy. "I need a residence to preserve me heat," he stated. "I desire a wife and i would like kids,and so I desire a condominium. Can you supply me a condominium ?"" I don’t have any apartment," said the tree."The wooded area is my residence,however you may also cut off my branches and construct ahouse. Then you are going to be joyful." And so the boy cut off her branchesand carried them away to build his residence. And the tree was once glad. However the boy stayed away for a very long time. And when he came again,the tree was so completely happy she would hardly speak. "Come, Boy," she whispered,"come and play." "i’m too old and unhappy to play,"stated the boy. "I want a boat that willtake me far far from here. Are you able to provide me a boat?" "scale back my trunkand make a ship," stated the tree."Then you can sail away…And be happy." And so the boy scale down her trunkand made a boat and sailed away. And the tree was completely satisfied… But no longer fairly. And after a protracted timethe boy came back again. "i’m sorry, Boy,"said the tree," but i have nothing left to give you -My apples are gone." "My teeth are too weakfor apples," said the boy. "My branches are long gone,"mentioned the tree. " Youcannot swing on them – " "i am too ancient to swingon branches," stated the boy. "My trunk is long past, " said the tree. "You cannot climb – ""i am too worn out to climb" stated the boy."i am sorry," sighed the tree. "I wish that I would give you anything….But i’ve nothing left. I’m just an historical stump. I’m sorry…." "I don’t want very much now," mentioned the boy. "only a quiet place to sit and relaxation. I’m very worn out." "well," said the tree, straighteningherself up as a lot as she might, "good, an historic stump is good for sitting andresting Come, Boy, sit down down.Take a seat down and relaxation." And the boy did. And the tree used to be happy..
