THE HARES AND THE FROGS

ORİJİNAL METİN (DİNLEME METNİ)

 

BASİTLEŞTİRİLMİŞ METİN
One day hares gathered together and lamented the unhappiness of their lot because they were exposed to a lot of dangers but they weren't strong and they didn't have courage. Men, dogs, birds many other animals were their enemies and they killed and ate the hares everyday. They decided to kill themselves instead of enduring this unhappy life. So they ran to a pool near them. They were intending to drown themselves. Some frogs were sitting by the pool. When they heard the hares, they all jumped into the water and hid themselves. Then, one of the hares, who was wise, said to his friends, "Stop, my friends, be brave; don't let us kill ourselves; there are creatures who are afraid of us, and who must, therefore, be still more timid than ourselves."

THE HARES AND THE FROGS
The Hares once gathered together and lamented the unhappiness of their lot, exposed as they were to dangers on all sides and lacking the strength and the courage to hold their own. Men, dogs, birds and beasts of prey were all their enemies, and killed and devoured them daily: and sooner than endure such persecution any longer, they one and all determined to end their miserable lives. Thus resolved and desperate, they rushed in a body towards a neighbouring pool, intending to drown themselves. On the bank were sitting a number of Frogs, who, when they heard the noise of the Hares as they ran, with one accord leaped into the water and hid themselves in the depths. Then one of the older Hares who was wiser than the rest cried out to his companions, "Stop, my friends, take heart; don't let us destroy ourselves after all: see, here are creatures who are afraid of us, and who must, therefore, be still more timid than ourselves."
