Fabula Facilis: Alauda, Pulli, et Agri Dominus

Alauda pullos suos ponit
in segete
et eos monet,
"Dum absum,
diligenter attendite
praetereuntium sermones de messe!"
Cum mater redit a pastu,
pulli anxii ei dicunt,
"Dominus agri
messis operam vicinis mandat!"
Mater respondet,
"Nihil periculi est."
Item, alio die,
cum mater redit a pastu,
pulli trepidi dicunt,
"Dominus amicos rogat ad metendum!"
Mater iterum iubet,
"Estote securi!
Nihil est periculi."
cum mater redit a pastu,
pulli ei dicunt,
"Dominus ipse et filius eius
postremo mane
cum falce messem intrabunt!"
Mater nunc dicit,
"Iam est tempus!
Dominum enim agri timeo,
quia probe nunc scio:
haec res cordi ei est."
