A Question to La Fontaine

A Question to La Fontaine Was the ant free from debt to the cicada? If she could live to work without a song, Then her life was hardly worth living; And let her gather to eat, And eat to die. If, on the other head, She only garnered better And the more provisions made Because he sang to the world, and her, On his grass-blade, Then the more to him she owed, As part of her harvest Was his Who, too, had sowed. Tunis, 2000
