Based on a news story of two Chinese men. ( Sorry this is not some how coming right)


Two men met by chance
Now one was blind
The other , now he had
No arms
They had no roll to play
In their community
The community took sympathy
On the two men - fed them and
What not - fore the new found friends
That being what they needed it were not
The two men were sat beside each other
While the rest of the community got about
The day
The two men got to talking - telling of there woes
That - was soon said
The man with no arms told of how the land was turning
To sand - looking to become a desert - dieing
How sad the community was - becoming all sad - loosing
Life and the future was looking rather gloomy fore the community
Looking bleak

Then the one with no arms - had got to saying: '' TREES ''
''That is what is needed hear , mate ''
'' Year , your right there , matey '' '' aye '' , the blind man agreed
They both fell silent , thinking
The man with no site , said: '' pity no one plants no trees ''

'' Well!'' , said the man with no site '' then I recon we could and should ''
'' Well , lets see , I have both arms '' , '' you no site ''
'' Let us team up , and plant the trees hear and all around hear ''

The man with no site , smiled and said '' Aye , lets get about it then , mate! ''

Ten thousand trees later , them two old friends , still planting trees!

The land now being covered by all trees known:
Fruit trees , apple , pear , cherry , peach , plum , all known , plus walnut trees!
Ash , oaks , pine , weeping willow and all and all
When come the spring , trees in blossom , green leaves all abound!
Butterflys flit the blossoms , honeybees with flitting among then making honey!

Friends indeed so well met!
