Aesop's Fables by  J. H. Stickney




CROW, snatched a piece of cheese out of a window and flew with it up into a tree, to eat it at leisure. A Fox passing by chance to look up and saw her. He coveted the prize and thus made his approaches to secure it. "O Crow," said he, "how beautiful are thy wings and how bright are thine eyes! How graceful thy neck! What a pity that such a bird should want only a voice!"
