The Fox Without a Tail : Spelling Worksheet

ไม่มีความคิดเห็น:

It happened that a Fox caught its tail in a trap, and in
struggling to release himself lost all of it but the stump. At
first he was ashamed to show himself among his fellow
foxes. But at last he determined to put a bolder face upon
his misfortune, and summoned all the foxes to a general
meeting to consider a proposal which he had to place
before them. When they had assembled together the Fox
proposed that they should all do away with their tails. He
pointed out how inconvenient a tail was when they were
pursued by their enemies, the dogs; how much it was in
the way when they desired to sit down and hold a friendly
conversation with one another. He failed to see any
advantage in carrying about such a useless encumbrance.
‘That is all very well,’ said one of the older foxes; ‘but I do
not think you would have recommended us to dispense
with our chief ornament if you had not happened to lose
it yourself.’

The One-Eyed Doe : Spelling Worksheet

ไม่มีความคิดเห็น:

The One-Eyed Doe
A Doe had had the misfortune to lose one of her eyes,
and could not see any one approaching her on that side.
So to avoid any danger she always used to feed on a high
cliff near the sea, with her sound eye looking towards the
land. By this means she could see whenever the hunters
approached her on land, and often escaped by this means.
But the hunters found out that she was blind of one eye,
and hiring a boat rowed under the cliff where she used to
feed and shot her from the sea. ‘Ah,’ cried she with her
dying voice,
‘You cannot escape your fate.’

Hercules and the Waggoner : Spelling Worksheet

ไม่มีความคิดเห็น:

Hercules and the Waggoner
A Waggoner was once driving a heavy load along a
very muddy way. At last he came to a part of the road
where the wheels sank half-way into the mire, and the
more the horses pulled, the deeper sank the wheels. So the
Waggoner threw down his whip, and knelt down and
prayed to Hercules the Strong. ‘O Hercules, help me in
this my hour of distress,’ quoth he. But Hercules appeared
to him, and said:
‘Tut, man, don’t sprawl there. Get up and put your
shoulder to the wheel.’
The gods help them that help themselves.

The Bundle of Sticks


An old man on the point of death summoned his sons
around him to give them some parting advice. He ordered
his servants to bring in a faggot of sticks, and said to his
eldest son: ‘Break it.’ The son strained and strained, but
with all his efforts was unable to break the Bundle. The
other sons also tried, but none of them was successful.
‘Untie the faggots,’ said the father, ‘and each of you take a
stick.’ When they had done so, he called out to them:
‘Now, break,’ and each stick was easily broken. ‘You see
my meaning,’ said their father.
Union gives strength.
