Image: Columba et Mustela


M0516 - M0517 - M0518
517. Columba et Mustela. Cum mustela catulos suos quotidie transferret, hanc columba interrogavit quid toties locum mutare tamque sollicitam esse cogeret. Illa respondit, “Cum te pullos tuos educare usque in eodem loco viderem et hos tibi usque subripi, ista tua securitas me anxiam fecit.



M0517 (not in Perry). Source: Desbillons 8.18 (adapted into prose). This fable is not in Perry’s catalog; it appears original to Desbillons, as he cites no source. For the story of the dove and her nest, see #516.
