A Fable



The Eagle and The Arrow

AN EAGLE sat on a lofty rock, watching the movements of a Hare
whom he sought to make his prey.  An archer, who saw the Eagle
from a place of concealment, took an accurate aim and wounded him
mortally.  The Eagle gave one look at the arrow that had entered
his heart and saw in that single glance that its feathers had
been furnished by himself.  "It is a double grief to me," he
exclaimed, "that I should perish by an arrow feathered from my
own wings."
 Why It Is A Fable: This small paragraph is one of the many fables that were written by Aesop, it is a fable since it gives a story about an animal in specific, that at the end gives a moral.
