The Lion Beaten by the Man (French Folk Tale)

Folk Tales, French Folk Tales3361


A picture once was shown,

In which one man, alone,

Upon the ground had thrown

A lion fully grown.

Much gloried at the sight the rabble.

A lion thus rebuked their babble::

“That you have got the victory there,

There is no contradiction.

But, gentles, possibly you are

The dupes of easy fiction:

Had we the art of making pictures,

Perhaps our champion had beat yours!”
