For your reading pleasure, here is a fable with macrons:


Racēmum dēpendentem frustrā cōnāta est Vulpēcula iteratīs saltibus attingere. Sed tandem cōnātibus cassīs omnīnō dēfatīgāta, indignābunda recessit, inquiens, “Apage acerbās et immātūrās istās ūvās, quae sānē tam sordidae sunt ut nē quidem humī iacentēs attollerem, sī mihi grātīs offerrentur.”
