The Fox and the Grapes
Eti Wokharian eti zebib

A very hungry fox walked into a field of grapes
Hanti zetemiet wokharia nab zebib zelowo meret tezowira

where there were lots of delicious grapes.
Hiji gn, bezu mokoor zebib nehru

the fox was hungry.
Eta wokharia temia nehra

But, the grapes were higher than the fox could reach.

He jumped trying to get the grapes,
Neti zebib koworoodo netiru

but he didnt do it
gn aygeberene/ayka-al-en

He tried many times
Bezuh gezeya fetinu

He was tired after jumping to get the grapes.
Dehiri bezuh mental neti zebib koworod dehimu

Those grapes are sour, he said as he walked away,
Zebib Tabalashiu nehru

I wouldn't eat them if they were on a gold platter.
