TREES AND THE AX, THE
Once upon a time, there was a lumberjack who needed a new handle for his ax.
The lumberjack went into the forest and begged the trees for a handle for his ax.
The trees gave the lumberjack a small ash sapling.
The lumberjack was very pleased and carved a new ax handle from the sapling.
Then, the lumberjack went back into the forest and began chopping down the grandest and noblest trees with his ax.
Now, the trees were sorry that they had given the small ash tree to the lumberjack.
In giving the small tree to the lumberjack, it cost them all greatly.
If only the trees had known the lumberjack’s plan, they would have continued to stand tall and stately for ages to come.
