The Little Rose Plant
Once upon a time, the little rose plant lived in a dark damp room. This room was secluded from everything else in the world. The rose plant was quite arrogant with its beauty. She believed she needed no-one and she could be beautiful all by herself. Also, read The Peony Tree And The Peony Flower.
One day, she hears a soft tapping on the door. “Who is it?” she asks. “I am Little Raindrop,” soft voice answers. “Please let me in,” the raindrop says. Now, the arrogant rose plant becomes angry. “No way,” she replies rudely, “I won’t let you in!” The poor little raindrop leaves the rose plant alone and leaves.

Then another day she heard a soft rustle near her door. “Who is it?” she questions. “I am Sunny Sunshine,” a voice happily answers. “Would you be kind enough to let me in?” it asks. The arrogant rose plant refuses again. “I don’t have time for the sunshine!” she yells. And so, the sunshine too leaves the little rose plant alone.
But after a few days, something strange happens to the little rose plant. She sees her beauty begin to fade away. Without water and sunlight, her leaves begin to droop. Then, her stem too begins to become weak. Her flowers begin to crumble. And for this reason, the little rose plant begins to become sadder by the day. “What should I do now?” she would wonder.
Then, one day she suddenly hears the musical sound of birds. Without wasting any time, the little rose plant rushes to the door. Opening it in a hurry, she rushes outside only to find spring in full bloom. Finally, spring was here. She saw the birds flying, she saw the flowers smiling. Above all, she saw the sun smiling down at all of them.
Suddenly, the little rose plant realized her mistake. She knew she had been wrong to turn away from the raindrop and the sunshine. And so when the Little Raindrop and Sunny Sunshine returned, she welcomed them happily. You may also like to read, The Oak Tree And The Reeds.
