At last, he came out in search of some food to satisfy his hunger. But, to his utter dismay, he could not find even a morsel of food or a blade of grass. He was tired, wet and shivering with a terrible cold. He knocked at the door of an ant. The door was opened and the cricket entered. “Yes,” said the ant. “You see”, said the cricket, “I am wet and hungry. Will you lend me some food? Take the word of a gentleman that I shall return it to you.” The ant was moved with pity. “This house.” Said she, “is yours; but you see we ants never lend and never borrow. But did you not anything in the spring?” “No, not, “replied the cricket, “The weather was no nice, I sang”, “Oh you sang! Said the ant, “Did you? Well, dance winter away!” So, in a very polite manner, the ant turned the poor cricket out.
