The Sick Stag

A stag that had fallen sick lay down on the rich foliage of a lawn, close to a forest, that she might obtain an easy meal. But so many of the beasts came to see her, for she was a good sort of neighbor that, one taking a little and another a little, they ate up all the grass in the place. So, though recovering from the disease, she pined for want and in the end lost both her substance and her life.
