For your reading pleasure, here is a fable with macrons:
Laqueum praetendit Rūsticus gruibus anseribusque, sata dēpascentibus. Capitur et Cicōnia. Supplicat illa et innocentem sēsē clāmitat, nec gruem nec anserem esse, sed avium omnium optimam, quippe quae parentibus sēdulō inservīre eundemque seniō confectum alere consuēverat. Agricola: “ Hōrum (inquit) nihil mē fugit; vērum cum nocentibus postquam tē cēpī , cum nocentibus moriēris.”
