A very short story Kindness

A Rope with a Name

I SAW A BOY COMING towards me with sheep running after him.

`No wonder the sheep follows you so closely,' I remarked, `attached to

You as it is by that rope round its neck,'

The boy laughed and released the animal. Off it went, gamboling in delight.

Then the boy made to move on. Immediately the sheep came to

His heel and followed close behind.

The youth smiled and gave it some barley.

`You were right, wise man,' he said, `but as you see, the name of the rope is kindness.'
