Aesop's fable


​Lesson 5


The Fox and the Crow



听到这番恭维,乌鸦简直受宠若惊,一心只想着向狐狸炫耀一下自己的歌喉,就“呱”地大叫了一声。理所当然,她嘴裏的那块奶酪就掉了下去,狐狸立刻抓奶酪,说:“乌鸦夫人,我知道你的歌喉很不错,可你需要的是智慧。 ”




  A Crow was sitting on a branch of a tree with a piece of cheese in her beak when a Fox observed her and set his wits to work to discover some way of getting the cheese. Coming and standing under the tree he looked up and said, “What a noble bird I see above me! Her beauty is without equal, the hue of her plumage exquisite. If only her voice is as sweet as her looks are fair, she ought without doubt to be Queen of the Birds.”


The Crow was hugely flattered by this, and just to show the Fox that she could sing she gave a loud caw. Down came the cheese, of course, and the Fox, snatching it up, said, “You have a voice, madam, I see: what you want is wits.”
