There was once a cobbler（补鞋匠）who seemed to be happy throughout the day. He couldbe heard singing as he worked. Whatever he got from his work was just enough for food andsimple clothing, yet he was always happy.
His neighbor was a rich banker, living in a large and grand house. Unlike the cobbler, heseemed to be unhappy all the time. No one ever saw him smile or laugh. And of course he neversang.
One afternoon, while sleeping, the banker was woken up by the cobbler ’s singing. Feelingangry, he thought, “I must put a stop to this! ” He went over to the cobbler ’s house. The cobblergreeted him cheerfully.
“What makes you sing so much?” asked the banker.
“I’m a happy man,” said the cobbler simply.
“Don’t you need more money to make you and your family happier?”asked the banker.
“Don’t you want to buy more beautiful things for your family and live in a bigger house? ”
“Well,”said the cobbler, “I’ve never worried about those things because I cannot affordthem.”“I’ll help you,” said the banker.
“If you look after my bag of gold coins, I’ll pay you well.”
The cobbler thought that was easy. He dug a hole in his garden and hid the bag of coins in it.But now he had something to worry about. He worried that thieves might come and steal thegold coins.
He worried so much that he stopped singing. He could not eat or sleep properly. His homewas silent.

Every afternoon when John could sit up, he would describe to Tom all the things he couldsee outside the window.

As John described all this in detail, Tom would close hiseyes and imagine the beautiful scenes.
Days and weeks passed. One morning, the nurse found that John had passed awaypeacefully in his sleep. The next day, Tom asked if he could be moved to the bed next to thewindow. The nurse was happy to do this, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left himalone.
