THE ESCAPED JACKDAW

 

A Man caught a Jackdaw and tied a piece of string to one of its legs,and then gave it to his children for a pet.But the Jackdaw didn’t at all like having to live with people;SO.after a while.when he seemed to have become fairly tame and they didn’t watch him SO closely,he slipped away and flew back to his old haunts.Unfortunately,the string was still on his leg,and before long it got entangled in the branches of a tree and the Jackdaw couldn’t get flee.try as he would.He saw it was all up with him.and cried in despair,“Alas,in gaining my freedom I have lostmy life.”

 

有人捕捉到一只寒鸦,并用麻绳绑住了他的一只脚,然后给孩子当宠物玩。可是,寒鸦很不愿意与人一起生活。过了一段时间后,当他看上去似乎已经被驯服了时,人们便不再密切监视他了。于是,寒鸦趁机逃出去,飞回了自己的老巢。不幸的是,他的腿上依然还绑着那根绳子,很快便被树枝缠住再也飞不起来了。看到自己性命无保,寒鸦绝望地哭喊道:“唉,为了获得自由,我竟丢失了性命。”
