One day a nightingale was singing from the top of a tall tree, as nightingales do.  A hawk was just then passing by.  He heard the singing and then saw the nightingale.  He swooped down and caught the little nightingale in his claws.  “Please,” Mr. Hawk, “Let me go,” squawked the nightingale.  “I’m too little to make a meal for a big bird like you!”  The hawk didn’t stop for a minute and flew off with his tasty little snack.  He knew that he might not find another meal for quite a while so he decided to eat the nightingale while he had the chance.


Moral:- Don’t let the thought of greater things prevent you from enjoying what you already have.
