The Scarecrow

The Scarecrow

1 min
253


Once I said to a scarecrow, 'You must be tired of standing in this

lonely field.'


And he said, 'The joy of scaring is a deep and lasting one, and I

never tire of it.'


Said I, after a minute of thought, 'It is true; for I too have

known that joy.'


Said he, 'Only those who are stuffed with straw can know it.'


Then I left him, not knowing whether he had complimented or belittled

me.


A year passed, during which the scarecrow turned philosopher.


And when I passed by him again I saw two crows building a nest

under his hat.
