I’ve finished the book Ghosts and Legends of Frederick County by Cannon and Whitmore. So, to take a little break before moving on to other legends, here’s one of Aesop’s Fables called The Fox and the Grapes.
“A fox one day spied a beautiful bunch of ripe grapes hanging from a vine up in the branches of a tree. The grapes seemed ready to burst with sweet juice. The fox’s mouth watered as he gazed longingly at them.”
The sweet looking bunch of grapes hung high up in the tree, causing the fox to have to jump for them. The first time he jumped, he was way off the mark. The second time he jumped, he took a running jump. He still missed. Each time he jumped, he missed the grapes.
“What a fool I am,” said the fox. “Here I am wearing myself out to get a bunch of grapes. They are not worth my effort. I am sure they are sour.”
He walked off with his nose in the air.
Hope you have a great day!
Thanks for stopping by!!
