where he lay.
"Envious animal," exclaimed the ox, how ridiculous is
your behaviour! You cannot eat tlie liay yourself, and

The ox in his indigent friend.
To hoard up what we can't enjoy.
Is Heaven's good purpose to destroy.

A goat shut up her kid in safety at home, while she
went to feed in the fields, and advised her to keep close.
A wolf watching their motions, as soon as the dam was
gone, hastened to the house, and knocked at the door.
"Child," said he, counterfeiting the voice of the goat, "I
forgot to embrace you; open the door, I beseech you,
that I may give you this token of my affection. No! no!
replied the kid (who had taken a survey of the deceiver
through the window), I cannot possibly give you admission;
for, though you feign very well the voice of my dam, t

Who turns sage counsel to a jest.
Takes the sure road to be undone.
A parent's counsels e'er revere.
And mingle confidence with fear.
