There was a Merry cricket. He liked to sing and dance. He danced and sang all day hoping grass to leaves.
It was the spring season. Therefore there was no lack of food. He enjoyed the life and became merrier. Didn’t save a little food for the winter.
When winter came all the food was gone. Leaves and grasses are no where to be found. He was hungry and weak. So, be went to the ant colony. And asked them some food. He told “I will return you when spring come”.
Ant told him, ” You have sang and danced the whole spring without gathering anything to your rainy days. So go and dance out the winter”. They turned him.
The cricket died in hunger and cold.
