A little black ant found a large grain of wheat,

Too heavy to lift or to roll;

So he begg'd of a neighbour he happened to meet,

To help it down into his hole.

"I've got my own work to look after," said he;

"You must shift for yourself, if you please,"

So he crawl'd off as selfish and cross as could be,

And lay down to sleep at his ease.

Just then a good brother was passing the road.

And seeing his brother in want,

Came up and assisted him in with his load,

For he was a good-natured ant.

Let all, who this story may happen to hear,

Endeavour to profit by it;

For often it happens that children appear

As cross as the ant every bit.

And the good-natured ant who assisted his brother

May teach those who choose to be taught,

That if little insects are kind to each other,

Then children most certainly ought.
