The Walnut-Tree

: Aesop's Fables

A WALNUT TREE standing by the roadside bore an abundant crop of

fruit. For the sake of the nuts, the passers-by broke its

branches with stones and sticks. The Walnut-Tree piteously

exclaimed, "O wretched me! that those whom I cheer with my fruit

should repay me with these painful requitals!"
