The Goose and The Swans

A vain Goose went around bragging about looks and even compared herself to Swans. Mistake. A Swan showed up to correct the record. When you brag you only reveal your own faults.

The Kites and The Swans

Kites had the gift of song but were enchanted by the neigh of a Horse. In trying to imitate that the Kites lost their ability to sing. The desire for imaginary benefits often involves the loss of present blessings.

The Swan and The Goose

A Swan and Goose were raised together; one for song and one for supper. The cook picked the Swan but he sung out and saved his life. A man cannot be too careful of what he does, where the life of any creature is in question.

The Raven and The Swan

A Raven desired a Swan’s white feathers. He thought the color was due to the water so he went to live in the lake. Not water, and going hungry, he perished. Change of habit cannot alter nature.
