A long time ago, there was a huge apple tree. A little boy loved to come and lay around it every day. They loved to play together.
Time went by, the boy had grown up and no longer played around it. One day, he came back and the tree excitedly invited him to play. But the boy said he needed money to buy toys. “Sorry, but I have no money, but you can pick all my apples and sell them,” said the tree. The boy did as told and left happily but never came back .The tree was sad.
Many years passed, the boy returned and told him he had to make money to build a house for his family. The tree happily offered his branches for his house. With the branches, he boy left satisfied. The tree was again lonely and sad.
Then one hot summer day, the tree was delighted to see the boy back again. “Come and play with me!” the tree said. “I am sad and getting old. I want to go sailing to relax myself. Can you give me a boat?” “Use my trunk to build your boat.” The boy cut the tree trunk and went sailing but never showed up for a long time. The tree was happy, but it was not true.
Finally, the boy returned after he left for so many years. “Sorry, my boy. But I don't have anything for you anymore. No more apples for you.” the tree said with tears.
The boy replied that he was too old and needed nothing “Good! Old tree root is the best place to lean on and rest. Come, Come sit down with me and rest.” The boy sat down and the tree was glad and smiled with tears...
One possible version:
The fable presents a sentimental story to us in which an apple tree satisfied a boy's wishes unconditionally. To the tree, nothing was more delightful than the boy's company.
The apple tree's magnanimity and the boy's selfishness impress me most. What the tree has done shows us how devoted a mother can be. The tree, like a passionate mother, always embraced the boy whole-heartedly no matter when he came back and what he required of it. But the boy's actions are really shameful. Regardless of the tree's health, he deprived the tree of its fruit, branches and even the trunk. He was too selfish.
I was deeply moved by the fable and felt an impulse to praise all the mothers. It made me realize how great my mother is and I should be grateful for what she has done. To reward her, I'll do my utmost to live up to her expectations.

One possible version:
If I Were the Boy，What Would I Do?
The tree in the fable is affectionate and unselfish. It dedicated everything to the boy but asked for no return. All it desired is the boy's company.
If I were the boy, I would keep contact with the tree and be considerate. First, from the bottom of my heart, I know the tree is more than a tree, it is my dearest love. Young or old, I would keep in touch with it using various ways. If I have to travel away, I would write to it, phone him or send e-mails to it informing it of my life. Secondly, in order not to let my dearest feel so lonely, I would plant some trees and flowers around it. These plants will brave the hard winters with it. In addition, I would invite some other children to play with it. Their company will surely make the life more colorful.
