The Geese and the Cranes were feeding in the same meadow,
when a birdcatcher came to ensnare them in his nets. The
Cranes, being light of wing, fled away at his approach; while
the Geese, being slower of flight and heavier in their bodies,
were captured.

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
