Aesop's Fables
 You're here » Kids Index » Aesop's Fables » Part 4 » The Serpent And The Eagle Print Version

The Serpent And The Eagle

An Eagle swooped down upon a Serpent and seized it in his talons with the intention of carrying it off and devouring it.
      
      But the Serpent was too quick for him and had its coils round him in a moment; and then there ensued a life-and-death struggle between the two.
      
      A countryman, who was a witness of the encounter, came to the assistance of the Eagle, and succeeded in freeing him from the Serpent and enabling him to escape.
      
      In revenge the Serpent spat some of his poison into the man's drinking-horn.
      
      Heated with his exertions, the man was about to slake his thirst with a draught from the horn, when the Eagle knocked it out of his hand, and spilled its contents upon the ground.

Moral: One good turn deserves another.
