The Swallow and the Crow (Greek Folk Tale)

Folk Tales, Greek Folk Tales4253

A Swallow was once boasting to a Crow about her birth. “I was once a princess,” said she, “the daughter of a King of Athens, but my husband used me cruelly, and cut out my tongue for a slight fault. Then, to protect me from further injury, I was turned by Juno into a bird.” “You chatter quite enough as it is,” said the Crow. “What you would have been like if you hadn”t lost your tongue, I can”t think.”
