One Day A Hungry Fox

One day, a hungry fox,
Saw a high vineyard.
It was full of sweet grapes,
He might not have, he feared.

They were hanging in such
A height, that he jumped
And jumped, but couldn't get.
He had to remain starved,

Again he jumped, and jumped,
And went on jumping ever.
But all his efforts were in vain,
He failed to touch that cluster.

Being upset, he got angry
As he wasted his hour.
Before leaving out of pain,
He said--Grapes are very sour!
