Once, when a Lion was asleep, a little Mouse began running up and down upon him. This soon wakened the Lion, who placed his huge paw upon him, and opened his big jaws to swallow him. “Pardon, O King,” cried the little Mouse, “forgive me this time, I shall never forget it! I may be able to return the favor one of these day?” The Lion was so tickled at the idea of the Mouse being able to help him that he lifted up his paw and let him go. Some time after, the Lion was caught in a trap, and the hunters, who desired to carry him alive to the King, tied him to a tree while they went in search of a wagon to carry him on. Just then the little Mouse happened to pass by, and seeing the sad plight of the Lion, went up to him and soon gnawed away the ropes that bound the King of the Beasts. “Was I not right?” said the little Mouse.
Lile doste abil na finis daybono doste.
Little friends may prove great friends.
Rubahe ji Kraw
The Fox and the Crow
Banwatu, rubahe oko kraw na awfley har bage di jubin in sesu conce, ji na estocu per xube de drevo. “Dento tasya mi,” rubahe loga, ji te sampo cel peda de drevo. “Bono dina, senyor kraw,” te dayloga. “Yu daydenmo bono okocu nundina: yusu yumaw daydenmo brilapul; yusu oko daydenmo luminpul. Mi yakin ki yusu voka xankakal ultrapasa dento de plu alo piu, samapul ku yusu figura. Am izin tas mi na ore sol un lala fal yu celki mi am salom yu denpul ku wango de piu. Kraw lifti sesu kape ji xoru na krawsa fol sesu otimya, mas fe momento ku te buka sesu munte, bage di jubin sokutu cel geo, sol celki rubahe awbujo to. “Hinto kufi,” te loga. “Hinto le is moyto ku mi wole da. Por yusu jubin, mi xa gibe tas yu nasiha cel xaya: am no xinloy cosanyen.
A Fox once saw a Crow fly off with a piece of cheese in its beak and settle on a branch of a tree. “That’s for me,” said the Fox, and he walked up to the foot of the tree. “Good day, Mistress Crow,” he cried. “How well you are looking today: how glossy your feathers; how bright your eyes. I feel sure your voice must surpass that of other birds, just as your figure does. Let me hear but one song from you that I may greet you as the Queen of Birds.” The Crow lifted up her head and began to caw her best, but the moment she opened her mouth the piece of cheese fell to the ground, only to be snapped up by the Fox. “That will do,” said he. “That was all I wanted. In exchange for your cheese I will give you a piece of advice for the future: Do not trust flatterers.
Kargux ji Kroa
The Hares and the Frogs
Plu kargux denmo multi bebohay plu alo hewan, ki ete no jixi na idi cel keloka. Fori xaki ete oko un solo hewan nerecu cel ete, ete awpawbu. Ban dina, ete oko yexen umalar ku da daypawbu fe jowey, ji fe real paniko moy kargux awvelosicu cel nere hosu, kararpul na garaku fe tayday fe na jiwa in denmo hawfupul dujotay. Mas preciso momento ku ete nerecu cel byen de hosu, kroalar, ku da hawfugido fe turno fal nerecu de kargux, awvelosicu ji tyao cel in sui. “Satiya,” un te of kargux loga, “imisu halular no denmo buru ku to kwasi: moywatu hay bante in maxmo buru halular kom yu.”
The Hares were so persecuted by the other beasts they did not know where to go. As soon as they saw a single animal approach them, off they used to run. One day they saw a troop of wild Horses stampeding about, and in quite a panic all the Hares scuttled off to a nearby lake, determined to drown themselves rather than live in such a continual state of fear. But just as they got near the bank of the lake, a troop of Frogs, frightened in their turn by the approach of the Hares, scuttled off, and jumped into the water. “Truly,” said one of the Hares, “things are not so bad as they seem: there is always someone worse off than yourself.” There is always someone worse off than yourself.
Baru ji Dua Dawoyen
The Bear and The Two Travelers
Dua insan tongo dawo daw drevolar denwatu ku baru abruto precu in etesu dawo. Un te of dawoyen velosi supraidi cel drevo, ji sango se intre xube. Alote oko ki te xa beatake. Fe folo, te infrajeti se cel geo. Baru ata cel te ji plasi sesu nasa nere fe tesu ore, ji nasa te total. Mas fe fini, te resta te, koski nil baru yam mor maso.
Two people were traveling together through a forest when a bear suddenly appeared in their path. One of the travelers quickly climbed a tree and hid himself among the branches. The other saw that he would be attacked, so he threw himself on the ground. The bear came up to him and put its snout close to his ear and smelled him all over. But at last he left him, because bears do not eat dead meat.
Xaja, alo dawoyen infraidi of drevo ji, fe na haha, te swal tas sesu doste baru le lilloga keto tas tesu ore. "Te le gibe tas mi hin nasiha," tonyen jawabu, "Am nilwatu xinloy doste ku da awresta yu denwatu ku hatari nerecu."
Then the other traveler descended from the tree and, laughing, asked his friend what the bear had whispered in his ear. "He gave me this advice," the companion replied, "Never trust a friend who abandons you at the approach of danger."
Utarali Vento ji Sola
The North Wind and the Sun
Utarali Vento ji Sola debate kete maxmo bala, denwatu ku dawoyen preata koberido in termopul kapa. Ete dongi ki dente ku da unyum kosa ki dawoyen ofplasi sesu kapa ingay na bekolyo maxmo bala kom alote. Denwatu, Utarali Vento vento har sesu total balaya, mas fol max ki te vento, maxmo nere ki dawoyen perfleksi sesu kapa wey se; ji fe fini, Utarali Vento esto na xidu. Denwatu, Sola termopul xorbrila, ji fori, dawoyen ofplasi sesu kapa; ji fe folo, Utarali Vento bexucyo na etiraf ki Sola is maxmo bala te of dua te.
The North Wind and the Sun were disputing which was the stronger, when a traveler came along wrapped in a warm cloak. They agreed that the one who first made the traveler take off his cloak should be considered stronger than the other. Then the North Wind blew with all his might, but the more he blew, the more closely did the traveler fold his cloak around him; and at last the North Wind gave up the attempt. Then the Sun shone out warmly, and immediately the traveler took off his cloak; and so the North Wind was obliged to confess that the Sun was the stronger of the two.
