The Kid and the Wolf


A kid that had strayed from the herd was pursued by a wolf. When she saw no other hope of eluding the wolf she turned and said, "I must allow indeed that I am your victim but as my life is now brief let it be a merry one. Do pipe for a while and I will dance."

While the wolf piped and the kid danced dogs hearing the music ran up to see what was going on. The wolf was glad to take off without looking back just as fast as his legs would take him.

He who plays the part of the fool may miss the prize.
