In a field there was a tree and a bunch of flowers.
The tree was old, bent from age.
But his branches reached far, and he had seen many seasons come and go.
His roots were strong and even the strongest wind couldn't bring him down.
Next to him was a bunch of pretty flowers in full bloom.
New to the field.
They laughed and taunted the tree
They said, "Look at us, we are so young, so pretty."
"We smell sweet and everyone who stops looks at us." 
"Not at you old tree."
Time went on and at the end of the season the flowers wilted and died away
Like all young flowers do.
But the tree remained.
