Fabula Facilis: Rusticus et Coluber

Coluber in alta nive iacet.
Frigore prope enectus est.
Rusticus colubrum reperit.
Misericors, domum fert.
Rusticus colubrum ad focum adiicit.
Coluber ab igni vires et virus recipit.
Calefactus, flammam amplius non fert.
Sibilando, coluber totum tugurium inficit.
Rusticus sudem corripit et accurit.
Cum colubro iniuriam expostulat,
verbis et verberibus.
Rusticus ei dicit,
"Bestia ingratissima!
Vitam mihi eripere vis,
sed vitam tuam mihi debes!"
