Word List: Peacock, Proud, Humble, Hummingbird, Display, Beauty, Bragging, Tiny, Agility, Burden
Once upon a time, there lived a peacock named Percy who was very proud of his beautiful feathers. Percy loved to display his feathers and show them off to everyone he met. He would brag about how beautiful and colorful his feathers were, and he thought that he was the most beautiful bird in the world.
One day, Percy met a hummingbird named Harry. Harry was a tiny bird with delicate and beautiful feathers, but he was very humble. Unlike Percy, Harry never bragged about his beauty.
Percy asked Harry if he wanted to see his feathers, but Harry declined, saying that he didn’t want to be a burden to Percy. Percy was surprised by Harry’s response and asked him why he was so humble.
Harry replied that he didn’t need to display his feathers to prove his beauty because true beauty comes from within. He explained that he was proud of his agility and his ability to fly quickly and gracefully, and that was what made him special.
Percy was moved by Harry’s words, and he realized that he had been making a mistake all along. He decided to stop bragging about his feathers and instead focus on being a kind and humble bird, like Harry.
From that day on, Percy and Harry became great friends, and they went on many adventures together. Percy learned a valuable lesson about the importance of humility, and he was grateful to Harry for showing him the true meaning of beauty.
