J&D Fables: Grus et Pavo



Today's podcast is the audio for one of the fables in Jacobs & Doering's Latin Reader which you can find online at the Aesopus wiki). You can find out more about this particular fable at my Aesop website.
Pavo
coram grue
pennas suas explicans,
Quanta est, inquit,
formositas mea
et tua deformitas!
At grus evolans,
Et quanta est, inquit,
levitas mea
et tua tarditas!
Monet haec fabula,
ne ob aliquod bonum,
quod nobis natura tribuit,
alios contemnamus
quibus natura
alia
et fortasse maiora
dedit.
