The Ant and the Grasshoppers.

Aesop’s Fables

THE ANTS were using a beautiful day in the middle of winter to finish drying the grain that they had gathered throughout the summer. A grasshopper that was almost dead from starvation came by and pleaded with others around for some food to save its life. The Ants confronted him with the question, “Why did you not store food away throughout the summer?” He said, “I did not have sufficient leisure. Singing helped me get through the days.” Then, in a mocking tone, they replied, “If you were stupid enough to sing all summer, you must dance supperless to bed in the winter.”
