Fable Aesop
The Thrush And The Fowler
printer friendly version
A Thrush was feeding on a myrtle-tree and did not move from it
because its berries were so delicious. A Fowler observed her
staying so long in one spot, and having well bird-limed his reeds,
caught her.

The Thrush, being at the point of death, exclaimed, "O foolish
creature that I am! For the sake of a little pleasant food I have
deprived myself of my life."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
