The Farmer and the Sharing Scarecrow

In the peaceful village of Harveston, surrounded by fields of golden wheat and towering sunflowers, lived a hardworking farmer named Eli. Eli was proud of his crops but often found himself too busy to share his bounty with others, focusing only on his gains.

One day, while preparing for the upcoming harvest, Eli decided to build a scarecrow, hoping to protect his precious wheat from the hungry birds. Using old clothes and straw, he crafted a scarecrow with a kind face and placed it in the middle of his field.

That night, under the light of a full moon, something magical happened. The scarecrow came to life, blessed by the moon’s enchanting rays. He looked around at the bountiful field and felt a deep sense of purpose.

The next morning, Eli was surprised to find fewer grains than usual. “It must be the birds,” he thought, unaware of the scarecrow’s nightly deeds.

However, the scarecrow, whom the moon had named Corwin, had a different mission. Each night, Corwin would gather some of Eli’s wheat and share it with the animals of the forest, ensuring they had enough to eat during the lean months.

Days passed, and Eli noticed the animals coming closer to his farm, no longer taking more than what Corwin set aside for them. Puzzled by this change, he decided to stay up and watch over his fields.

To his astonishment, he saw Corwin come to life, sharing the wheat with the animals. “Why do you give away my crops?” Eli asked, feeling a mix of anger and curiosity.

Corwin turned to Eli, his straw-filled heart full of wisdom. “Eli,” he said, “the land gives us more than enough to sustain ourselves and help others. By sharing, we create a circle of kindness that returns to us in ways we might not see but surely feel.”

Moved by Corwin’s words and actions, Eli’s perspective began to change. He started leaving parts of his field unharvested on purpose, dedicating them to the animals and the less fortunate villagers.

As the seasons changed, Eli’s farm flourished more than ever before. The villagers, inspired by Eli’s generosity, began to share their own harvests, transforming Harveston into a community where everyone looked out for one another.

One evening, as Eli and Corwin watched the sunset over the now-shared fields, Eli turned to his friend. “Corwin, I’ve learned that sharing not only helps those around us but enriches our own lives. Thank you for teaching me the true value of generosity.”

And with a gentle rustle of straw, Corwin smiled, knowing his purpose had been fulfilled.
