There was only one tree in the open field. Obviously, he is a lonely tree, not only without the company of other trees, but also without the company of birds. The tree was lonely for many years. He was sad and desperate. He didn't want to grow up. He thought he would be lonely all the time.
One day, a bird suddenly flew by the tree, then flew back, landed on the branch and said to the tree: Hello! Tree, can I make a nest on you?
The tree looked at the bird in surprise. He couldn't believe his ears. He said: I must have heard wrong! Bird, please say it again.
I want to make a nest on you, OK? The bird said it again in a loud voice.
Are you sure? Do you really want to make a nest in my lonely tree? The tree asked eagerly, but there are dense woods not far away. Many birds have gone there to nest. Why do you choose me? You'll be alone.
I'm not alone with your neighbor. Said the bird.
This sentence made the tree tremble, but he still advised the bird to say: I am a deciduous tree, in winter, my leaves will fall out, I can't give you shelter. Smart birds don't choose to nest on me.
It doesn't matter, I will make the nest firmly, I will make the bed warm, so I'm not afraid of winter snow. Said the bird.
I can't think of a reason to refuse you. Well, I welcome you to live here. The tree laughs and shakes countless branches to welcome the birds.
In the next few days, birds would fly around every day, looking for nest materials, such as soft feathers, soft hay, thin branches and slippery spider silk
The bird's nest grows stronger and warmer day by day. Finally one day, the nest was finished. The birds began to live in their nests at ease. Birds catching insects for trees not only feed themselves, but also make trees healthier. Every time I go out, the bird will collect stories and come back to tell them to the tree. The tree often laughs, so that the bird's nest vibrates with it. At this time, the bird feels like sitting in the cradle, wobbling, warm and comfortable!
The tree is very happy, but also very worried, because winter is coming soon.
The leaves on the tree began to fall one by one, and the tree began to frown. He said: bird, my leaves are about to fall out. Move quickly, or how can you spend the winter?
Tree, you don't have to worry about me. I've decided to stay with you all winter.
What a stupid bird! Although the tree mouth said so, the heart is warm.
The merciless snowstorm finally came, and the bird hid in its nest, shivering with cold. The tree tried to close its branches to the nest to protect it. After a blizzard, the bird's nest still couldn't hold up, fell to the ground and rolled far away.
Tree said: I'm really sorry, I have no leaves, can't shelter you from the wind and snow; My branches can't close your nest and make it fall.
You don't have to be sorry. I didn't expect that this snowstorm was so severe. It was my own inexperience. When it clears up, I'll reinforce my nest.
Bird, I always do not understand, why do you want to accompany me? The tree finally said the long hidden question.
Tree, you know, Blizzard is not lonely and terrible! Said the bird.
Of course, I know that I used to be a lonely tree, but how can you know the taste of loneliness? The tree is curious.
Tree, let me tell you a story. I used to live with my parents and a large group of birds. Our troops move to the south before the cold winter comes every year, and return to the north when the weather gets warmer. We have been living happily. But once, we were infected with a very terrible virus on the way of migration. This virus spread quickly and killed many birds, including my parents and friends. I feel so sad that the sky is going to fall. In order to avoid cross infection of the virus again, the first bird did not allow the surviving birds to continue to live together, so we went our separate ways, and I became a lonely bird
Oh, so you still have this experience. The tree sighed.
yes. The bird nodded, so I decided to find a friend who was as lonely as me to accompany him, so that we would not be lonely.
The tree was so moved that the branches trembled, but his heart was steadfast, because he knew that the birds would not leave him and that he would never be lonely again.
Another snowstorm is coming. The tree is worried that the birds will not survive this winter. What should I do? What should I do? The head of the tree whirled like a windmill, and suddenly he thought of something.
Bird, you see I'm so confused that I forgot such an important thing. Tree said, in my body, there should be a hole, that is many years ago a passer-by dug, he dug while pouring out his sad things, after pouring out, the hole also dug, and then he left happily.
Oh, what else? But I've never seen a hole in you.
Maybe it's been a long time, covered by something. You look for it quickly and carefully.
The bird flies up and down along the tree, knocks, and looks for it carefully. Finally, surprisingly, it finds a hole under a loose tree.
The bird immediately got into the tree hole. There was still heat in it. It was safe, comfortable and warm. The bird soon fell asleep inside.
The tree felt very happy, he said to himself: in the future, I must take root very deep, and strive to grow up, so that the branches crisscross, leaves full, can cover the sun and summer, wind and snow, I want to give birds a better home.
The snowstorm finally passed, and the bird flew out of the tree hole and stood on the branch.
The vast expanse of white between heaven and earth, the golden sun on the snow, on the trees, also on the birds
What a beautiful view! What a beautiful day! The tree and the bird said together, and then they laughed happily together
