Fābula 33: Dē Sene et Morte (with macrons)

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


Fasce praegravātus Senex, et misellae suae pertaesus sortis, Mortem invocābat, ut fīnem aerumnōsae vītae tandem dēfīgeret. Invocāta advēnit Mors, percontāta Senex quid sēcum velit; ad cūius adventum territus, nil respondit sed “Ut auxiliō mihi sīs, et fascem collapsum rursus umerīs impōnās !”
