There's none so small but you his aid may need.
This striking truth two fables now shall prove ;
Matter enough is here your faith to move.
A blundering rat burst through the earth,
And fell into the lion's paws.
The animal of royal birth
Scorned with such blood to stain his claws :
He spared his life, the kindness was repaid ;
Who'd think the lion could e'er require his aid ?
However, 'twas the lion's lot,
Leaving the forest, in a net to fall,
Nor could his rage and roaring break the thrall.
The rat ran to his aid, and speedily
Gnawed through a mesh and set him free.
Patience and length of time will still
Much more than force and rage fulfil.

I love it!!! I'm embroidering these beautiful cards and, in the meantime, my little girls are rediscovering these wonderful Fables. (Translated review)
