An Excerpt from The Giving Tree

“And after a long time the boy came back again.  "I am sorry, Boy," said the tree, "but I have nothing left to give you-  My apples are gone."  "My teeth are too weak for apples," said the boy.  "My branches are gone," said the tree.  "You cannot swing on them-"  "I am too old to swing on branches," said the boy.  "My trunk is gone," said the tree.  "You cannot climb-"  "I am too tired to climb," said the boy.  "I am sorry," sighed the tree.  "I wish that I could give you something... but I have nothing left. I am an old stump. I am sorry..." "I don't need very much now," said the boy, "just a quiet pleace to sit and rest. I am very tired."  "Well," said the tree, straightening herself up as much as she could,  "well, an old stump is a good for sitting and resting. Come, Boy, sit down. Sit down and rest." And the boy did. And the tree was happy.” 

― Shel Silverstein, The Giving Tree
