THE LION AND THE MOUSE

ORİJİNAL METİN (DİNLEME METNİ)

 

BASİTLEŞTİRİLMİŞ METİN
While a lion was sleeping, a mouse ran over his face and woke him up. The lion got angry and seized the mouse and was about to kill it. The mouse was terrified and entreated the lion to spare its life. "Please let me go," it cried, "and one day I will repay you for your kindness." The lion was amused because the mouse was very small and weak, and the lion thought "How can a mouse help a lion?", and he laughed loudly and set the mouse free (=let it go). But one day the lion got caught in a net which was set by some hunters. The mouse heard and recognized the lion's roar and ran to the spot. Without waiting, it began to gnaw the ropes and soon the lion was free. The mouse said, "you laughed at me when I promised I would repay you: but now you see, even a Mouse can help a Lion."

A Lion asleep in his lair was waked up by a Mouse running over his face. Losing his temper he seized it with his paw and was about to kill it. The Mouse, terrified, piteously entreated him to spare its life. "Please let me go," it cried, "and one day I will repay you for your kindness." The idea of so insignificant a creature ever being able to do anything for him amused the Lion so much that he laughed aloud, and good-humouredly let it go. But the Mouse's chance came, after all. One day the Lion got entangled in a net which had been spread for game by some hunters, and the Mouse heard and recognised his roars of anger and ran to the spot. Without more ado it set to work to gnaw the ropes with its teeth, and succeeded before long in setting the Lion free. "There!" said the Mouse, "you laughed at me when I promised I would repay you: but now you see, even a Mouse can help a Lion."
