AESOP'S FABLES

The Fowler and the Snake – AESOP’S FABLES

Spying a sparrow in a tree,

A fowler threw his net.

But in his haste he did not see

Where his own feet were set.

 

Just then he heard a hiss, and saw

A ribboned body dart,

And felt as though a fiery claw

Had pierced him to the heart.

 

And from the venom soon he died,

While watcher heard him moan

that he who hunts another’s hide

Should also guard his own.
