Scene I: A gypsy encampment near Paris

Scene II: Back at the studio

With dragging wing and sagging head,
Cursing his curiosity, (our friend)
Crawled homeward by the nearest way,
And after his eventful day
Sans further peril reached the Tree
Our friends once more together! - you may guess
The joys which paid them for their past distress.

Extracts from The Fables of Jean de la Fontaine, translated by Edward Marsh.
