One morning, the speaker walking on the stone-paved a road and asking out to hire him. Firstly, a king came near him and told that he would hire him with his power but his power counted for nothing so he disliked his agreement. During mid-day, an old man came with gold coins and said that he would hire with money but the speaker rejects all his money because money will soon be spent and money cannot buy us everlasting happiness. In the evening, the garden fences were full of flowers. A fair lady came out from the garden and said that he would hire him with a smile but her smile faded away and she melted into tears and returns into the dark leaving the speaker alone. At last a child playing with shells and said that he would hire him with nothing a poet accepted his agreement but the speaker was attracted by the flawless character of the child so he accepted the agreement of the child. The bargain of the child makes the speaker a free man.
