The most beautiful bird

Once upon a time, there was a farmer who went into the forest in the mountains to collect some firewood. While he was on his way back home, he saw a big bird injured lying on the ground. Compassionately, he carried the bird home and nursed it to health.

As the bird got better day by day, the farmer could see that this is a very beautiful bird. It got silvery white feathers that shine brightly and it got a very beautiful voice that can sing soothing melodies. When the bird got better, it did not fly away. Instead, it stayed with the farmer and sing for him everyday.

One day, someone told him there was also a golden bird living in the mountain. It has feathers ten times more beautiful than the silver bird and a voice hundred times more enchanting than the silver bird.

From that day onwards, the farmer started looking for the golden bird in the mountains and kept thinking about the golden bird. But he never found it and as days go by, he became more and more sad. He couldn't sleep well and eat well. When the silver bird saw this, it tried to cheer the farmer up. It flew around him and started singing for him, but the farmer was still unhappy and ignored the silver bird.

Seeing this, the silver bird was dejected. It flew to the feet of the farmer and bowed its head low, to show its appreciation to the farmer for saving its life. After that, it took off into the sky, and started flying back towards the mountains.

When the farmer looked up, he saw that the silver bird, under the setting sun, had turn into a golden bird.
