The deer and the lion By Michael Kokkinaris (Adapted from the namesake fable of Aesop) A thirsty deer came to a spring to drink water. As he drank water, watched his idol and admired the size and diversity of his horns. But when little removed from the spring and looked his legs that looked as thin as reeds and weak, then nearly , then almost cried from the ugly spectacle that saw. At that very moment he felt the danger of a lion approached quietly. Without losing time, the deer began to run and win the hunt of a lion,with help of the place who was dry and treeless. But when the place became wooded, deer caught from the magnificent horns and felt a little hungry breath of the lion. Since then he realized that he would die, he said to himself desperate: “What I thought made me special and proud, what exactly was betrayed and killed.” The fable of Aesop is dedicated to those who casually judge what is beautiful and what is ugly! Aesop (pronounced /ˈiːsɒp/ EE-sop, Ancient Greek: Αἴσωπος, Aisōpos, c. 620–564 BC) was a fabulist or story teller credited with a number of fables now collectively known as Aesop’s Fables.
