XXV. The Lion and the Hare

Once upon a time there was a Lion, who used to eat up one of the animals of the forest every day. They had to come up one after another, when called for. At last it came to the Hare's' turn to be eaten, and he did not want to be eaten at all. He hesitated and he waited about, and when at last he had the courage to come, he was very late. The Lion, when he saw the Hare coming, ran towards him. The Hare said
" Uncle Lion, I know I am late, and you have cause to be angry. But really it is not my fault.' There is another Lion in our part of the forest, and he says that he is master, and you are nobody. Indeed, when I showed him that I certainly would come to you, he was very angry."
" Ha! " said the Lion, roaring; " who says he is my master? Show him to me. I'll teach him who is master of the forest."
" Come along then," said the Hare.
They went a long way, until they came to a well.3 The Hare looked down into the well. "He was here just now," said he.
The Lion looked in, and at the bottom 4 he saw what looked like a Lion in the water. He shook his head-the other Lion shook his head. He roared-the echo of a roar came up from the bottom of the well. " Let me get at him! " roared the Lion. In he jumped-splash ! Nothing more was ever heard of that Lion, and the animals of the forest were glad to be left in peace.5 They put their heads together,6 and made this poem, which is always sung in that forest on Sundays:
The Hare is small, but by his wit 7
He now has got the best of it 8;
By folly 9 down the Lion fell,
And lost his life within 10 the well."
