Aesop's Fables... in Latin!

Fābula 34: Dē Cervō in Bovium Stabulō (with macrons)

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

Persecūtus ā canibus, Cervus ad stabulum bovium confugiēbat et ibi tōtum corpus, praeterquam cornua, abscondēbat. Adībat stabulum Servus et ille, oscitanter et negligenter hūc et illūc oculōs circumferens, mox dēcessit. Fortūnae suae nimis applausit laetābundus Cervus et sēsē tūtissimum autumābat. Sed statim, ipsō Herō ingrediente locum, et rēbus cūriōsius perlustrātīs, cornua Cervī dētexit et fustibus cum vīcīnīs adoriēbātur.
