A Vine was luxuriant in the time of vintage with leaves and grapes.
A Goat, passing by, nibbled its young tendrils and its leaves. The
Vine addressed him and said: "Why do you thus injure me without a
cause, and crop my leaves? Is there no young grass left? But I shall
not have to wait long for my just revenge; for if you now should crop
my leaves, and cut me down to my root, I shall provide the wine to
pour over you when you are led as a victim to the sacrifice."
