The lark in the corn-field
Don't fear hollow threats
Once a Lark made her nest in a corn-field. Soon she laid eggs in it. After a few days small babies hatched out of them. One day the baby-larks overheard the farmer say, "I will call my neighbors to reap this field."
The Baby-larks got alarmed to hear this and told their mother about it. "Don't worry," said the mother. Some days later, the farmer came again and said, I will call my relatives to reap this field." The baby-larks afraid again.
"Fear not," said their mother. But the next day the farmer came there with his little son and said, "I will reap this field tomorrow." "Now is the time to go. When a man says he will do the work himself, he will certainly do it," said the mother-lark.
