Fabula Facilis: Harundo et Quercus

Quercus et harundo de robore disceptant.
Quercus exprobrat harundini mobilitatem.
"Tu ad quamvis exiguam auram tremis!"
Quercus sic dicit, sed harundo tacet.
Paulo post, procella furit.
Quercus procellae resistit.
Procella quercum radicitus evellit.
Sed harundo vento cedit.
Hoc modo harundo locum suum servat.

This story is based on 731. Harundo et Quercus.
