The Tallest Tree in the Forest

The tallest tree in the forest decided to take a walk one day. It had never done so before, so the act was quite surprising to the other trees. Some of the saplings became very afraid. As youngsters who looked up to the grand tree, they didn’t know any better and assumed that the oldster held up the sky, so far up did its branches reach. Sometimes, on clear nights, the saplings noticed that the moon would get tangled up in the top branches of the tallest tree. It didn’t have the heart to correct them, but when the moon failed to show one evening, the tree worried something had gone wrong, hence the decision to go for a walk in search of the moon to restore her to her place in the starry heavens.
