爱美的小鹿

Story Brief

The Stag at the Pool

A stag one summer’s day came to a pool to quench his thirst, and as he stood drinking he saw his form reflected in the water. “What beauty and strength,” said he, “are in these horns of mine; but how unseemly are these weak and slender feet!”

While he was thus criticizing, after his own fancies, the form which Nature had given him, the huntsmen and hounds drew that way. The feet, with which he had found so much fault, soon carried him out of reach of his pursuers; but the horns, of which he was so vain, becoming entangled in a thicket, held him till the hunters again came up to him, and proved the cause of his death.
