Fable Aesop
The Frogs' Complaint against the Sun
printer friendly version
Once upon a time, when the Sun announced his intention to take
a wife, the Frogs lifted up their voices in clamor to the sky. Jupiter,
disturbed by the noise of their croaking, inquired the cause of
their complaint.

One of them said, "The Sun, now while he is single, parches up
the marsh, and compels us to die miserably in our arid homes.
What will be our future condition if he should beget other suns?"

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
