The Geese and the Cranes, illustrated page from 'Baby's Own Aesop'
A man holds a goose by the neck and with his other hand, raises a stick to it. Two further geese are alarmed and spread their wings. Ears of wheat splay out behind them, and three cranes fly into the sky on the right-hand side of the page. The rhyme is inset on the left. It reads:
"The Geese and the Cranes

The geese joined the cranes in some wheat;
All was well, till, disturbed at their treat,
Light-winged, the cranes fled,
But the slow geese, well fed,
Couldn't rise, and were caught in retreat.

Beware of enterprizes where the risks are not equal."
1900
