The Woman and the Wolf

27. THE WOMAN AND THE WOLF. A Wolf one morning, prowling around in search of food, as he passed a hut in the woods heard a woman say to a child, “Be quiet, or I will give you to Wolf, and he shall eat you."
The Wolf waited all day, and in the evening he heard the same woman fondling the child, and saying, “He is quiet now, and if the Wolf comes, we will kill him.”
The Wolf returned to his den, when the She-Wolf asked him why he had returned without his usual prey. “Why! Because I took a Woman at her word."
