AESOP'S FABLES

THE LION AND THR DONKEY – AESOP’S FABLES 

A lion, starving, once pursured

A frightening donkey foe,

When through the morning solitude

He heard a rooster crow.


Not knowimg that a harmless fowl

Had made this mighty sound,

He paused in a dread; then, with a howl,

Turned homeward at a bound.

 
Meanwhile the donkey gave his head

A proud and knowing fling.

“Look! I have scared him off!” He said;

And chases the Forest King.

 
And that is how it came about

A clawed and tawny beast

Rrcovered swiftly from his rout

And had a donkey feast.
