The gay cicada, full of song
All the sunny season long,
Was unprovided and brought low,
When the north wind began to blow ;
Had not a scrap of worm or fly,
Hunger and want began to cry ;
Never was creature more perplexed.
She called upon her neighbour ant,
And humbly prayed her just to grant
Some grain till August next ;
“I'll pay, ” she said, “what ye invest,
Both principal and interest,
Honour of insects –and that's tender.
” The ant, however, is no lender ;
That is her least defective side ;
“But, hark ye, pray, Miss Borrower, ” she cried,
“What were ye doing in fine weather ? ”
“ Singing . . . nay,! look not thus askance,
To every comer day and night together. ”
“ Singing ! I'm glad of that ; why now then dance. ”

J’aime bien le côté un peu désuet des dessins de ces grilles. Elles sont à un bon format assez grand et le papier est de bonne qualité. Leur présentation dans des enveloppes cartonnées décorées de motifs colorés, est très joli.

Elles sont absolument extra ces fiches ! La qualité d'impression est très bonne, on en a vraiment pour son argent ! Et cette Cigale et cette Fourmi, on les attendait depuis longtemps.
