Taylor, J. (n.d.). Aesop in Rhyme. Retrieved from

Excerpt: THE wind was high, the thunder loud; The lightning flashed from cloud to cloud; When an old oak, whose aged form Ere now had witnessed many a storm, Had borne the brunt, and still withstood The wind, the lightning, and the flood, Was torn up from his roots at last, By one tremendous, wintry blast; Then headlong to the stream descended; His ancient pride and glory ended.
