The Ant And The Grasshopper

The Ant And The Grasshopper

On a sunny day in the field, a Grasshopper is hopping around, chirping and singing to its heart’s content. An Ant passed by, bearing along with great effort an ear of corn. Grasshopper was talking to ant’s nest.

Why are you working so hard? The Almighty has provided us with food on every tree out here. Why work so much? Just eat and relax and have fun like the way I am doing. Stop working like those dumb ants. Come on let us play together and feast on the food.

Mr. Grasshopper the food that you are enjoying today, will not last for long. Please realize that. Well! Where is so much of food gonna go? Sure its gonna be here forever. Once the winters arrive, you will know how difficult it would get to gather food. So save today you don’t starve in winters. Oh! Winters have a long time to come till then let’s play and dance and feast on food.

When winter came, the grasshopper said, I feel hungry and helpless and tired. I haven’t eaten anything in days. He went to the ant and asked for her food. Are you feeling better? Yes, I am. Thanks for all the help and I think I have a lesson to learn now. Had I listen to you back then, I wouldn’t be so miserably homeless and hungry now.
