    2. 2. Once there was a giving tree who loved a littleboy. And everyday the boy would come to playswinging from the branches, sleeping in theshade, laughing all the summer’s hours away.And so they love, oh, the tree was happy. Oh,the tree was glad.
    3. 3. But soon the boy grew older and one dayhe came and said, "Can you give me somemoney, tree, to buy something I’vefound?" "I have no money," said the tree,"Just apples, twigs and leaves.“ "But youcan take my apples, boy, and sell them inthe town.“ And so he did andOh, the tree was happy.Oh, the tree was glad.
    4. 4. But soon again the boy came back and hesaid to the tree, "I’m now a man and Imust have a house that’s all my home.""I can’t give you a house" he said, "Theforest is my house." "But you may cut mybranches off and build yourself a home"And so he did. Oh, the tree was happy.Oh, the tree was glad.
    5. 5. And time went by and the boy came back withsadness in his eyes. "My life has turned so cold,"he says, "and I need sunny days.“ "I’ve nothing butmy trunk," he says, "But you can cut it down andbuild yourself a boat and sail away.“ And so he didand oh, the tree was happy. Oh, the tree was glad.
    6. 6. And after years the boy came back, both of themwere old. "I really cannot help you if you ask foranother gift.“ "I’m nothing but an old stump now.I’m sorry but I’ve nothing more to give.“ "I do notneed very much now, just a quiet place to rest,"The boy, he whispered, with a weary smile. "Well",said the tree,"An old stump is still good for that.“"Come, boy", he said, "Sit down, sit down and resta while."And so he did and oh, the tree was happy. Oh, the tree was glad.
