The Raven and the Fox

A raven stole a piece of meat and flew up and perched on a branch with it. A fox saw him there and determined to get the meat for himself. So he sat at the base of the tree and said to the raven:

‘Of all the birds ou are by far the most beautiful. You have such elegant proportions, are so stately and sleek. You were ideally made to be the king of all birds. And if you only had the voice you would surely be the king.’

The raven, wanting to demonstrate to him that there was nothing wrong with his voice, dropped the meat and uttered a great cry. The fox rushed forward, punched on the meat, and said:

‘Oh, raven, if only you also had the judgement, you would want for nothing to be the king of the birds.Image
