The Fox and the Crane


invited Crane for dinner

but served bean soup in a broad flat dish

the soup fell out of Crane's long bill

and Crane was vexed

and Fox amused.

In turn Crane invited Fox to sup

from a flagon with a tall narrow mouth

which suited the long necked Crane

but left Fox hungry

and Crane laughing.
