Once upon a time a man decided to sneak into his neighbor's fields and steal some wheat. "If I take just a little from each field, no one will notice," he told himself, "but it will all add up to a nice pile of wheat for me."
So he waited for the darkest night, when thick clouds lay over the moon, and he crept out of his house. He took his youngest daughter with him. "Daughter," he whispered, "you must stand guard, and call out if anyone sees me."
The man stole into the first field to begin reaping, and before long the child called out, "Father, someone
sees you!" The man looked all around, but he saw no one, so he gathered his stolen wheat and moved on to a second field.
"Father, someone sees you!" the child cried again. The man stopped and looked all around, but once again he saw no one. He gathered more wheat, and moved to a third field. A little while passed, and the daughter cried out, "Father, someone sees you!"
Once more the man stopped his work and looked in every direction, but he saw no one at all, so he bundled his wheat and crept into the last field.
"Father, someone sees you!" the child called again. The man stopped his reaping, look all around, and once again saw no
one. "Why in the world do you keep saying someone sees me?" he angrily asked his daughter. "I've looked everywhere, and I don't see anyone."
"Father," murmured the child, "Someone sees you from above."
