Aesop's Fables by  J. H. Stickney





HE Nightingale, sitting aloft upon an oak, was seen by a Hawk, who swooped down and seized her. The Nightingale earnestly prayed the Hawk to let her go, saying that she was not big enough to satisfy the hunger of a Hawk who ought to find plenty of larger birds. "Do you happen to see many large birds flying about?" the Hawk asked. "I should be foolish, indeed, to let you go for the sake of larger birds that are not in sight. A morsel is better than nothing."
