THE OLD TREE
There was once a king who was very proud of his beautiful garden. It was full of colourful
plants and creatures. The king did not like a very old and withered tree that grew in the middle
of the garden. The tree was removed and a musical water fountain was made in its place. With
the tree gone the moths and worms had no home, so they left the garden. With the worms
gone, the birds had no food to eat so they too left the garden. When the birds stopped coming,
no new plants and trees grew in the king’s garden. Soon, the only beautiful thing in the garden
was the musical fountain. When the King learnt about his mistake he was very sad. “How
easy it was to destroy the balance of Nature!” he thought. He built another garden but it took
thousands of men and many years for the trees to grow.
