Poor man & Rich man

Long ago there was a rich man with eye problems. The man saw every doctor he could, but nobody could help him.


A rich man: What good is all my money? My eyes hurt so much. Who can help me?

He wanted to find someone who could cure him.

The rich merchant Lee has great pain in his eyes. He will offer great reward to anyone who can cure his eyes.'

In that town, there lives a young candy seller. When the young man heard the story, he remembered something his mother had said. She had once told him about a special herb that was good for the eyes.

The poor man: I think I know how to help the poor, rich man.

Wife: Then you must do it.

The poor man: I'll leave for the forest tomorrow.

One day he was in the wood. He saw the water from a stream. He was looking down at an ant hole.

He: Oh, no! The water will kill the ants. I must help them.

We're all one. I should help the ants.

The poor man was sleeping in the forest. He dreamed. He was in a big city. He was kneeling down in front of a queen.

Queen: You helped us. Now, we're one. We'll always help you.

The poor man: I'm looking for a certain herb. It'll cure any disease of the eyes.

Queen: I have never heard of that herb. But keep looking. You'll find the cure.

The poor man: Thank you. I'll search hard.

He continued searching for the herb. And, the sun was just setting under the trees and it was getting dark.

The poor man: Oh! I'm so cold and tired. Where shall I sleep? Oh, there's an old temple over there. I'm sure I can sleep there.

Oh, look! The bird will eat the centipede. I must save it. We're all one.

Centipede: You helped me. Now I'll help you. We're all one. Go south. Look for a bead under a pine tree with two trunks. Put the bead in a drink and tell the rich man to drink it down. The poor man: Thank you, my friend. He left the temple. He walked until late in the afternoon, but all he saw were normal pine trees. When he found the strange tree, he tried to find the bead. But he couldn't find it. The poor man: I'll never find the bead here. It's too small. I need help. Ants, ants, we're all one! Ant friends, please help me. Help me find the small bead. Oh, thank you, my ant friends. Now I can go home. Having found the bead, the poor man went back to his town. The poor man: Here! Put the bead in a drink. It'll cure your eyes.

A rich man: My eyes are cured. How can I ever thank you?

The poor man: We're all one. Your health is all I want.

The rich man gave the poor man a huge reward.

Poor man wife: You're such a good husband.

The poor man: You're such a good wife.
