    The Spendthrift and the Swallow

There was a young man who was a great Spendthrift had run through all his properties but had one good cloak left.

One day he happened to see a Swallow, which had appeared before its season, skimming along a pool and twittering gaily.

He supposed that summer had come, and went and sold his cloak.

Not many days later, winter set in again with renewed frost and cold.

When he found the unfortunate Swallow lifeless on the ground, he said, "Unhappy bird! what have you done? By thus appearing before the springtime you have not only killed yourself, but you have done my destruction also."
