THE SUN FLOWER.
"In a maple tree," said Daddy,
"high up lu the center where the
there was a sun
flower grow lug.
"No one had
planted it there.
Some seed blown
by the wind must
have made it
grow there. How
lt came there no
one knew, only
thnt lt was there,
and that lt grew.
It's stem was not
very tall. Its
flower was of a
good size, how
ever, and very
golden and pretty.
"Sometimes." "The sun could
not reach it very
well tliere, but lt didn't seem to n\\nd.
It stood in the heart of the m?,\>le
tree and was very bappy. \
"When the maple tree had noticed
that the sunflower was growing up
like that, away from thc sun the
muple tree said:
" 'I shall be so delighted if you will
spend u good part of the summer with
me. Just us long as you can stay,
in fact. But I fear there will not be
much sun for you hero. I am among
a good many of my maple tree friends
and we like to keep lt shady for our
friends, the good people. They get
?o warm in the summer when there
is such hot, hot sun shining and they
like to be given shade from our leaves.
" 'We cannot do differently, Sun
Flower. But won't you stay with me,
anyway? It would be such a treat,
such an unusual treat.'
'* ' I will stay with you gladly,' said
th? Sun Flower. 'You are such a love
ly Maple Tree and you do so much
that is kind and good that I would be
very cruel not to do as you ask If 1
can. And I Imagine I can. I feel as
though I would be able to do as you
" Tt is very good of you to say that
a visit from me would be a treat.
I'm very grateful to you for saying
"So the sunflower stayed with the
maple tree and was very happy.
"Sometimes the fairies used to come
and play and again the gnomes and
brownies and elves would come.
"And people would puss by aud
would admire thc sunflower growing
in the maple tree. And others would
laugh and think it was a great Joke.
"The maple tree and the sunflower
enjoyed the joke too and often used
to laugh over lt together. Sometimes
after the sunflower and tho maple
tree had been laughing people would
pass by and they would not know
what made the sunflower look eo very
Jolly and cheerful and gay.
"The sunflower had really been
laughing with the maple tree.
"The wind would tell stories of
what lt had seen along the roads and
through the air as it had been going
on its travels.
" 'I've seen so much today," the
Wind said one evening, and the sun
flower and the maple tree begged the
Wind to tell them what he had seen.
