Fable Aesop
The Crow And The Serpent
printer friendly version
A Crow in great want of food saw a Serpent asleep in a sunny
nook, and flying down, greedily seized him. The Serpent, turning
about, bit the Crow with a mortal wound. In the agony of death,
the bird exclaimed: "O unhappy me! who have found in that which
I deemed a happy windfall the source of my destruction."

(Translated by George Fyler Townsend, 1814-1900)
