Fabula de Esopo
Singa ji Maux
Un mara, ku watu singa somno, lile maux xoru pawbu cel super ji infer per te. Xanerya, hinto jagegi singa, kute plasi sesu daydayo peda per te, ji buka sesu dayo jabare cel na nigal te. “Mafu, o wango,” lile maux dayloga, “am awmafu mi hin mara, mi nil watu xa wanji to! Abilya, mi abil rugibe lutuf ban xaner dina.” Singa denpul begude idey ki maux ger abil sayda te, ki te lifti sesu peda ji izin cel te idi. Ban watu fe xaya, singa bebujo in bujotul, ji xikaryen kute wole porta te jiwane cel wango, binde te cel drevo, durki ete idi xerca vagon cel porta te. Den preciso momento, lile maux fe xanse folpasa, ji okone fe hazuni burxanse de singa, nerecu cel te, ji xaner awyao kordo kuto binde wango de hewan. “Kam mi le no sahiya?” lile maux loga.
Lile doste abil na finis daybono doste.
The Lion and the Mouse
Once, when a Lion was asleep, a little Mouse began running up and down upon him. This soon wakened the Lion, who placed his huge paw upon him, and opened his big jaws to swallow him. “Pardon, O King,” cried the little Mouse, “forgive me this time, I shall never forget it! I may be able to return the favor one of these day?” The Lion was so tickled at the idea of the Mouse being able to help him that he lifted up his paw and let him go. Some time after, the Lion was caught in a trap, and the hunters, who desired to carry him alive to the King, tied him to a tree while they went in search of a wagon to carry him on. Just then the little Mouse happened to pass by, and seeing the sad plight of the Lion, went up to him and soon gnawed away the ropes that bound the King of the Beasts. “Was I not right?” said the little Mouse.
Little friends may prove great friends.
Rubahe ji Kraw
Ban watu, rubahe oko kraw awfley har bage di jubin in sesu conce ji esto per xube de drevo. “Dento is cel mi,” rubahe loga, ji te sampo cel peda de drevo. “Bono dina, senyor kraw,” te dayloga. “Yu denli bono okocu nundina: yusu yumaw denli brilapul; yusu oko denli luminpul.

Pro yusu jubin, mi gibe cel yu nasiha cel xaya: am no xinloy cosanyen.
The Fox and the Crow
A Fox once saw a Crow fly off with a piece of cheese in its beak and settle on a branch of a tree. “That’s for me,” said the Fox, and he walked up to the foot of the tree. “Good day, Mistress Crow,” he cried. “How well you are looking today: how glossy your feathers; how bright your eyes. I feel sure your voice must surpass that of other birds, just as your figure does. Let me hear but one song from you that I may greet you as the Queen of Birds.” The Crow lifted up her head and began to caw her best, but the moment she opened her mouth the piece of cheese fell to the ground, only to be snapped up by the Fox. “That will do,” said he. “That was all I wanted. In exchange for your cheese I will give you a piece of advice for the future: Do not trust flatterers.

The Hares and the Frogs
The Hares were so persecuted by the other beasts they did not know where to go. As soon as they saw a single animal approach them, off they used to run. One day they saw a troop of wild Horses stampeding about, and in quite a panic all the Hares scuttled off to a nearby lake, determined to drown themselves rather than live in such a continual state of fear. But just as they got near the bank of the lake, a troop of Frogs, frightened in their turn by the approach of the Hares, scuttled off, and jumped into the water. “Truly,” said one of the Hares, “things are not so bad as they seem: there is always someone worse off than yourself.” There is always someone worse off than yourself.
