Aesop's Fables by  J. H. Stickney




KID, coming alone from its pasture, was pursued by a Wolf. With great presence of mind the kid turned and said: "I know, Friend Wolf, that you mean to kill me; but as my life is to be short, let it be a merry one. Do your pipe and let me have one more dance before I die." While the Wolf was piping and the Kid was dancing, some Dogs, hearing the music, ran to the place to see what was going on; and the Wolf was glad to take himself off as fast as his legs would carry him.
