The Honest Woodcutter Story in English with Moral

There was a poor woodcutter. One day he was cutting a dry branch of a tree. The tree was growing on the bank of a river. Suddenly his axe fell into the river. The poor woodcutter felt very sad. He began to pray for help from the gods. God Mercury heard his prayer and appeared before him. He dived into the river and came with a golden axe. He said to the woodcutter ‘Is this golden axe is yours?’ The woodcutter said ‘no, it is not my axe. Mercury dived again and come out with a silver axe. Again he asked the same question and the woodcutter said it was not his axe.

Finally the god Mercury came out of the river with an iron axe and asked. Is this your axe?’Yes” replied the woodcutter,’ this is my own axe.’ The honesty of the woodcutter pleased god Mercury so much that he gave all the three axes to the woodcutter. The woodcutter was very happy. Truly, honesty is always the best policy.
