|A tender story of the relationship between a boy and a tree. As a youth, the boy swings from its branches. As a young man, he uses the tree to build a house and a ship. They separate and the tree fears she will never see him again, but the man returns in old age to be reunited with his faithful friend. Teacher note: an excellent contrast between the imparfait and passé simple.|
