Fabula Facilis: Satyrus et Viator

Viator nive obrutus est,
atque algore paene enectus.
Satyrus misertus est,
et viatorem ducit in antrum suum.
Viator manus refocillat
anhelitu oris.
Satyrus ei dicit,
"Cur in manus sufflas?"
"Hoc modo manus calent."
Postea accumbunt et cenant.
Viator in polentam sufflat.
Satyrus interrogat,
"Cur in polentam sufflas?"
Viator respondet,
"Hoc modo polenta frigescit."
Tunc satyrus viatorem eiicit,
"Exi ex antro meo;
Iste os tuum tam diversum
mihi haudquaquam placet!"

This story is based on 809. Satyrus et Viator.
