Lazy Grasshopper and Industrious Ant

Mr. Grasshopper and Mr. Ant were neighbors. They were very good friends Mr. Grasshopper was very lazy and imprudent. During the summer, he spent his days idly by merrymaking. On the contrary, Mr. Ant was very hard working.

He got up very early in the morning, ate a small breakfast and then started working on his farm. He worked very hard l day under the hot summer sun. He planted many crops and looked after them carefully. While Ant worked on his farm, Mr. Grasshopper sang happily in the warm sun. In addition, when he stopped, he sat and admired the beautiful countryside all around him. He looked at the leaves on the trees, the green fields and the anglers’ boats on the sea. Then Mr. Grasshopper fell asleep. While Mr. Grasshopper slept quietly in his chair, Mr. Ant continued to work on his farm. For many days, weeks and months, he was busy in his fields. Therefore, while Mr. Grasshopper enjoyed his leisure, Mr. Ant worked hard from morning until night.

While the rainy season set in, Mr. Grasshopper fell in danger. He could not manage two square meals a day, as he did not store food. He had to lead a miserable life.
