In search of food

There was a very skinny and very hungry Wolf.

He found such a stuffed dog,

so lucid, healthy and good,

who said: 'I miss

have a good year

as it can be seen by your face,

when to me, more powerful,

more daring and sagacious, my sad luck

He has made me a portrait of death. '

The Dog replied: 'Without a doubt

you will achieve, if you want, my fortune.

Leave the forest and the meadow;

retire to town;

you will serve as a goalkeeper

to a rich gentleman,

without another desire or more occupations

than defend the house from thieves. '

'I certainly accept your party,

that for much more I am hardened.

So I will get rid of fatigue,

that hunger forces me

of walking through mountains, walking rocks,

climbing cliffs and breaking thickets,

suffering from the rigors of the times,

rains, snows, frosts and heat. '

At a diligent pace

marching together amicably,

several points trying in confidence,

belonging to fill the tummy.

In this the Wolf, for some misgivings,

that began to disturb his comfort,

looking at the Dog, he said: 'I have repaired

that your neck is somewhat bare.

Tell me what is it?'. 'Nothing'.

'Tell me, for your life, comrade.'

'It is only the signal of the chain;

but I'm not sorry

Well, although I am restless

I am subject to her,

they let me go when my lords eat,

receive me at your feet with a thousand loves:

they already throw me the bread, already the slice,

and everything that they dislike;

this one badly roasted,

that one a little fleshless bone;

and still a glutton, who swallows everything,

at least it flatters me,

running his hand down my spine;

I wag my tail, shut up and eat. '

'All that is good, I confess it to you;

but finally and for dessert you are imprisoned:

you never leave home,

You can't even see what's going on in town. '

'It is so'. 'Well, my friend,

the beloved freedom that I get

I am not going to trade it in any way

for your abundant and prosperous fortune.

March, march to live in prison;

you will not be envied

of who walks the field freely,

even if you eat so gluttonously

bread, slices, and bones; because at the end,

there is no ripe morsel for a slave.
