Above them, as they slumber in graves that none may number, Dawns grow to day, days dim to dusk, and dusks in darkness pass; Unheeded springs are born, unheeded summers brighten, And winters wait to whiten the wilderness of grass. Biography of Guy Wetmore Carryl. A poet had a cat. There is nothing odd in that— I might make a little pun about the Mews! A raven sat upon a tree, And not a word he spoke, for His beak contained a piece of Brie.

The story concerns a small fry caught by a fisherman or "angler" that begs for its life on account of its size and suggests that waiting until it is larger would make it a more filling meal. The fisherman refuses, giving as his reason that every little amount helps and that it is stupid to give up a present advantage for an uncertain future gain. The fable was given further currency in La Fontaine's Fables V.

The sun persuades the traveler to take off his cloak The story concerns a competition between the North Wind and the Sun to decide which is the stronger of the two. The challenge was to make a passing traveler remove his cloak.
