Esop (Ohio, United States) (search for this): book 1, poem 3
The Vain Jackdaw Lest any one himself should plume, And on his neighbour's worth presume; But still let Nature's garb prevail- Esop has left this little tale: A Daw, ambitious and absurd, Pick'd up the quills of Juno's bird; And, with the gorgeous spoil adorn'd, All his own sable brethren scorn'd, And join'd the peacocks-who in scoff Stripp'd the bold thief; and drove him off The Daw, thus roughly handled, went To his own kind in discontent: But they in turn contemn the spark, And brand with many a shameful mark. Then one he formerly disdain'd, "Had you," said he, "at home remain'd-- Content with Nature's ways and will, You had not felt the peacock's bill; Nor 'mongst the birds of your own dress Had been deserted in distress."
