La vulp ed il corv The Fox and the Crow
unknown author Vernon Jones
Raeto-Romance English
La vulp era puspè ina giada fomentada. Qua ha ella vis sin in pign in corv che tegneva in toc chaschiel en ses pichel. Quai ma gustass, ha ella pensà ed ha clamà al corv: «Tge bel che ti es! Sche tes chant è uschè bel sco tia parita, lura es ti il pli bel utschè da tuts». Il corv ha sa sentì flattà da quest cumpliment. E perquai ch’insatgi ludava sia vusch, ha el avert ses pical ed ha cratschlà: «Craa-craa-craa». Ed il chaschiel è dà giu per terra. La vulp al ha tschiffà e maglià. A crow was sitting on a branch of a tree with a piece of cheese in her beak when a fox observed her and set his wits to work to discover some way of getting the cheese. Coming and standing under the tree he looked up and said, "What a noble bird I see above me! Her beauty is without equal, the hue of her plumage exquisite. If only her voice is as sweet as her looks are fair, she ought without doubt to be queen of the birds." The crow was hugely flattered by this, and just to show the fox that she could sing she gave a loud caw. Down came the cheese, of course, and the fox, snatching it up, said, "You have a voice, madam, I see. What you want is wits."
