Fābula 31: Dē Vulpe et Aquilā (with macrons)

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

Dum Vulpis prōles forīs excurrēbant, ab Aquilā comprehēnsae Mātris fidem implōrābant. Accurrit Vulpēs Aquilamque rogat ut captīvam prōlem dīmittat. Aquila, nacta praedam, ad pullōs subvolat. Vulpēs, correptā face, quasi nīdum incendiō absūmptūra esset, insequitur. Trepidans Aquila: “Parce (inquit) mihi parvīsque līberīs, et tuum quidquid habeō reddiderō.”
