      The Ass and the Grasshopper

                                                                                                                                           There was an Ass who once on having heard some Grasshoppers chirping, was highly engrossed; and, desiring to hold the same trinkets of melody, inquired what type of food they eat to get such beautiful voices.

They replied, "The dew." The Ass resolved that he would live only upon dew, and in a short time died of hunger.
