In front of a prosperous home(se, w, e and ne)

A prosperous house made of wood sits to the west, in the shade of two tall trees. Upon the wooden door hangs a sign, written in a careful and steady hand. To the east lies the center of the village, and the dirt path curves about to the southeast and northeast.
The west door is closed.
The only obvious exits are southeast, west, east and northeast.
An old man hobbles about
A bold urchin runs through the village
A white stork sits on top of the house {above you}
