The Canary-bird And The Wasp

‘Why do people not use me as they use you?’ said a Wasp to a Canary. ‘They make you a cage to live in, and give you seed and water every day; and often I see them bring you sugar, and fresh pieces of green groundsel (крестовник) and chickweed (мокричник). But when I come, they all try to drive me away, and very often they even try to kill me; yet (хотя) I am handsome and graceful to look at. The yellow colour on my body is as bright as yours, and my shape is very fine.’

‘That is quite true,’ answered the Canary; ‘but when men come to see me I treat them to a merry song, while you attack them with your sting.’

As you treat others, others will treat you.
