Aesop's Fables In Verse

I thought it would be fun to render some of Aesop's fables into verse. This has been done countless times in the past by lots of people, but I've never done it before; I thought I'd post some of them that I do and get some feed back from people that read them here(constructive feed back).

When choosing the verse form, I thought I'd do something unorthodox, and use couplets with syllabic lines. Generally couplet lines have a beat to them, but I thought it might be neat to go the syllabic route, I think the rhymes can keep the rhythm going and the syllabic structure keep it all nice and uniform. Anyway I hope to get my first one up maybe tomorrow night.
