The Ant and the Chrysalis

 An  Ant nimbly  running about in the  sunshine  in search  of  food  came  across a Chrysalis that was very near its time of change. The  Chrysalis  moved  its tail,  and thus attracted  the attention  of the  Ant,  who then saw for the first time that it was alive. "Poor,  pitiable  animal!" cried  the  Ant disdainfully. "What  a sad  fate  is yours!  While I can run hither and thither,  at my  pleasure,  and, if  I  wish,  ascend  the tallest  tree, you lie  imprisoned  here in  your  shell,  with  power only  to move  a  joint  or  two of  your scaly  tail." The Chrysalis  heard  all this, but  did  not  try to make any reply. A few days  after,   when the  Ant  passed  that  way again, nothing  but  the shell  remained.  Wondering  what had  become of its  contents, he  felt  himself  suddenly  shaded  and fanned  by the  gorgeous  wings of a  beautiful  Butterfly.  "Behold in me," said  the  Butterfly, "your  much-pitied  friend!  Boast  now of your powers to run and climb as long as you can get me to  listen." So saying, the Butterfly rose in the air, and, borne along  and aloft on the summer breeze, was soon lost to the sight of the  Ant forever.
