Hey guys! For English I was told to write a myth. The myth had to explain something in nature. So like normal everyone takes my ideas but I found the ultimate card. And that card would end up being my myth which I am going to share with you all. (Please don't copy it or steal it or what ever the term is now days. I worked really hard to get this done and wouldn't like it if I learned it was being copied and used for other projects.) So enjoy! (It makes a really good children's story)
The Origin of Forests
One day after hours of hunting on the plains and earning nothing, Wolf asked her friend Bear a simple question. “Bear, why is there no place for us? The buffalo have the plains, the fish have the rivers, and the birds have the sky! But there is nothing left for us!” Bear didn’t know how to answer Wolf’s question. So bear told her to go ask his friend Moose. “Great idea Bear! Thanks!” With that Wolf took off to find Bear’s friend Moose. When Wolf found Moose she asked him the same question. Moose told her, “This is a question that I do not have an answer for. Even I wonder too what it would be like to have a home like the birds.” Moose joined Wolf and thought that his cousin Elk would have the answer. So Moose and Wolf set off to find Elk. When they found Elk, Moose asked her Wolf’s question. Elk sat down and thought about the question. “Moose… Wolf… Have you asked Owl yet? She is sure to know.” Elk then joined Moose and Wolf on their search for the answer to Wolf’s question. When the group got to Owl’s place Wolf asked, “Wise Owl, Why is there no place for us? The Buffalo roam the plains, fish have the rivers, and the birds have the sky… But that leaves nothing for us!” Owl thought and thought and thought some more. “Wolf, you ask a good question… But I do not know the answer.” Wolf started to cry and Moose got very mad at Owl. “Owl, how could you not know the answer!?!? You are the wisest! You are supposed to know!” Moose and Owl argued for hours while Elk comforted Wolf. In morning when the sun rose a beautiful yellow butterfly flew up to them. The butterfly told them, “Mother Beetle would like to see you.” None of the questioned the butterfly they only followed. On the way to Mother Beetle’s they picked up Bear. They also ran into Rabbit and Rabbit asked, “Hey guys! Where are you going? Is it exciting? Is it dangerous? Or scary? Or fun?” Wolf told Rabbit that they were going to see Mother Beetle. Rabbit got excited and followed them to see Mother Beetle. After hours of traveling they finally to Mother Beetle’s. Mother Beetle welcomed them and asked them what their question was. Wolf answered Mother, “Our question is why there is no place for us? Buffalo have the plains, fish have the rivers, and the birds have the sky.” Mother Beetle look puzzled at the question. She thought about it. “Wolf you have given me an idea… I will make a place for you and your friends. It will have lots of trees and we will call it a forest. You and all of your friends can live there.” All the animals cheered about their new home and thanked Mother Beetle for it. They all left and went to their new home in the forest. Bear found beautiful cave to live in, while Moose and Elk found a clearing with lots of yummy green grass. Owl found a big tree and moved in with out a second thought. Rabbit found a nice green bush that grew tasty red berries and dug a hole underneath it. While Wolf found a good looking cave next to a calm stream that had fish swimming happily through it. All the animals where happy in their new homes and lived in the forest peacefully forever.
