THE HARES AND THE FROGS
HARES, as you know, are very
timid. The least shadow, sends
them scurrying in fright to a
hiding place. Once they decided to die rather than live in such
misery. But while they were
debating how best to meet death,
they thought they heard a noise
and in a flash were scampering off to the warren. On the
way they passed a pond where
a family of Frogs was sitting
among the reeds on the bank.
In an instant the startled Frogs
were seeking safety in the mud.
"Look," cried a Hare, "things
are not so bad after all, for here
are creatures who are even afraid
However unfortunate we may think we are there is always someone worse off than ourselves.
