The Golden Window
金色窗户


       A small boy lived on a farm that seemed so far away from everywhere. He needed to get up before sunrise every morning to start his chores and out again later to do the evening ones.
        During sunset he would take a break and climb up on the fence so in the distance he could see the house with golden windows. He thought how great it would be to live there and his mind would wander to imagine the modern equipment and appliances that might exist in the house. “If they could afford golden windows, then there must have other nice things.” He then promised himself, “Someday I will go there and see this wonderful place.”
        Then one morning his father told him to stay at home and his father would do the chores. Knowing that this was his chance, he packed a sandwich and headed across the field towards the house with the golden windows.
        As the afternoon went on, he began to realize how he misjudged the distance and something else was very wrong. As he approached the house, he saw no golden windows but instead a place with in bad need of a painting surrounded by a broken down fence. He went to the tattered screen door and knocked. A small boy very close to his age opened the door.
        He asked him if he had seen the house with the golden windows. The boy said, “Sure, I know,” and invited him to sit on the porch. As he sat there, he looked back from where he just came where the sunset turned the windows in his home to gold.
