Aesop's Fables... in Latin!

Fābula 19: Dē Vulpēculā et Cicōniā (with macrons)

For your reading pleasure, here is a fable with macrons:
Vulpēcula ad cēnam invītāvit Cicōniam , obsōniumque in mensam effundit et, cum liquidum esset, linguā lingēbat, quod Cicōnia frustrā rostrō tentāvit. Abit ēlūsa Avis, pudet pigetque iniūriae. Paucīs diēbus interlapsīs, invītat ad cēnam Vulpēculam. Vitreum vās situm erat, obsōniī plēnum. Quod cum esset artī gutturis, Vulpēculae licuit obsōnium vidēre, gustāre nōn licuit. Cicōnia enim rostrō facile exhausit.
