The Laurustinus and The Rose Tree

A Rose in all its glory berated a simple Vine. The Gardener told the Rose that it was pretty now but in the winter the Vine will be the pride of the garden. Prudence as well as gratitude, is concerned in the protection of a friend that will show his friendship in adversity.

The Hart and The Vine

Do not mistreat those who help you. A Hart (stag) hides from hunters in vines. The Hart starts to nibble on the vines and gives himself away. Too bad. Do not mistreat those who help you.

The Goat and The Vine

A Goat hid in a vineyard until danger passed. He then nibbled on the vines who got indignant and made noises to bring the hunters back. Bye-bye Goat! Ingratitude is dangerous.
