The Grasshopper And The Ants

The Grasshopper And The AntsOne fine day in winter some Ants were busy drying their store of corn, which had got rather damp during a long spell of rain.
      
      Presently up came a Grasshopper and begged them to spare her a few grains, "For," she said, "I'm simply starving."
      
      The Ants stopped work for a moment, though this was against their principles. "May we ask," said they, "what you were doing with yourself all last summer? Why didn't you collect a store of food for the winter?"
      
      "The fact is," replied the Grasshopper, "I was so busy singing that I hadn't the time."
      
      "If you spent the summer singing," replied the Ants, "you can't do better than spend the winter dancing." And they chuckled and went on with their work.
