The blackberry collector was a happy man surrounded by great treasures. Every morning he found diamonds in the grass. The roof of his home, which was more a palace than a house, was blue and white, held up by great brown columns crowned with green, and multi-colored capitals. In the back of his home stood a large mirror in which he saw his own reflection and that of everything around him, and every day a big orchestra played him the most beautiful music in the world.
One day an explorer came by. He knew of the blackberry collector's wealth and told the entire village. They all ran to this marvelous place to take his riches and enjoy them.
