The morning's temperament was painted the sun's hues, and the ascent over the earth was welcomed by cloud. Beneath the heavenly canopy; the tree on the hill, among the buds and the blossoms, the branches danced in the breeze out of the vast distant breadth; over and beyond came a lone child. Thomas peered down range skimmed the horizon to see whomsoever might find favor in the sight of the child. The head of the child swiveled round then from a distance run covered the area between them stopped on the road where the road curved before the hollowed trunk of the tree short of the shade provided by the canopy. The child intently stared at Thomas breathless silent the child stood alone; the color of the cheeks of the child were like the blossoms.
    "Will you not come to me?" in tears said the child.     
Thomas replied, "as the child comes forth into the light of the father?"
    The eyes of Thomas glowed when the child responded, "See not my trouble? They cry out to me." 
"Child," said Thomas, "who brings you here?"
    The child responded, "the tree called out the leafy fingers beckoned me to come moments after the darting bird suddenly passed, 'do not weep do not
fret all are under the providence of the father.'"
"What direction was the bird-headed from?" asked Thomas.
    The child responded, "from over the hills and valleys."
Thomas
motioned, "come," he said, "be sat by me child how long have you traveled?"
    "For days, the danger was made distant along the way many flocks were slain the people around me died."

"Child," Thomas replied, "I come down there to take part of the troubled spirit on you."
Thomas approached the child, folded his legs beneath himself, made lower than the child then he expressed his
sincerity, "dear child who taught you this that this has done before me?"
Thomas lost his breath when the child replied, "the spirit in which we be blessed." 
"Do not tell me or anyone your name. Nobody must know your name or age," said Thomas, and he went on, "you are the art of Origami, for everything you say has already become the legend before all are made undone. You cannot be more than two cubits tall."
    "I am hungry what tree was this that called out before me?"
Thomas replied "Origami, this tree was meant for the king the royal fruit of the
kings. Now come off the road; the best-kept secrets of the deep are stored above in plain view. We find shelter by the tree." 
They then went up on the hill, took shelter on the South side passing by the hollowed trunk of the tree, Thomas, "blessed be this child under the tree, let not my tongue roll down evil where must we be."
