The Evergreens: A Gentle Nature Tale


A little bird injures his wing and falls to the forest floor. Knowing winter is coming, he whistles to the oak, the birch and the maple tree to please pick him up and give him shelter. All of them refuse. Only an old pine tree shows compassion and lifts him into his branches. The fir and the hemlock help, and the evergreens save his life. Forevermore, Mother Nature allows them to keep their leaves in the winter.





This old tale from Denmark about compassion offers a pre-scientific explanation for why the deciduous trees drop their leaves in autumn, whereas the coniferous trees, the evergreens, keep their needles year-round. Odds Bodkin tells it with character voices, bird whistles and music on 12-string guitar.
