Fabula Facilis: Ranae Duae et Puteus

Ranae duae in palude degunt.
Aestivis autem diebus,
palus arefacta est.
Ranae eam relinquunt
et sibi aliam quaerunt.
Non longe progressae,
profundum puteum inveniunt.
Altera dicit,
"Descendamus in puteum!"
Sed altera respondet,
"Si denuo aqua deficiet,
quomodo ex puteo remeabimus?"

This story is based on 611. Ranae Duae et Puteus.
