Aesop’s Fables: The Fox And The Crow

Once a crow, without a creak

Sat with fine cheese in his beak

On a stout branch of a tree

As happy as he could be

A clever fox was passing by

Worked his wits for he was sly

Thus he spoke, “O’ noble bird

For your charms I have no word

If only your voice was sweet

Your beauty would be complete.”

At this, the crow gave a caw

And the cheese fell in his paw

Off the fox went running by

“You have no voice nor wits to ply.”

  1. No compliment, need be, if it means it will satisfy another’s hungry need.
    I bow out from this fight. Doesn’t make me naive or dumb….it’s a matter of preference as all for one…..I never wanted to be that number one.
