EXCERPT:

Upon a tree there mounted guard
A veteran cock, adroit and cunning;
When to the roots a fox up running,
Spoke thus, in tones of kind regard:–
“Our quarrel, brother, ‘s at an end;
Henceforth I hope to live your friend;
For peace now reigns
Throughout the animal domains.
I bear the news:–come down, I pray,
And give me the embrace fraternal;
And please, my brother, don’t delay.
