EXCERPT:

Two goats, who self-emancipated,–
The white that on their feet they wore
Look’d back to noble blood of yore,–
Once quit the lowly meadows, sated,
And sought the hills, as it would seem:
In search of luck, by luck they met
Each other at a mountain stream.
As bridge a narrow plank was set,
On which, if truth must be confest,
Two weasels scarce could go abreast.



COMMENTS:

The translation is in verse; a head-start on lyrics.
