Aesop's Fables

The Old Man And Death

An Old Man cut himself a bundle of faggots in a wood and started to carry them home. He had a long way to go, and was tired out before he had got much more than half-way.
      
      Casting his burden on the ground, he called upon Death to come and release him from his life of toil.
      
      The words were scarcely out of his mouth when, much to his dismay, Death stood before him and professed his readiness to serve him.
      
      He was almost frightened out of his wits, but he had enough presence of mind to stammer out, "Good sir, if you'd be so kind, pray help me up with my burden again."
