Aesop’s Fables – La Madre y el Lobo
Mr. Wolf was very hungry and was searching for food. He was walking near a hut in the village. The wolf heard a baby crying loudly.
“WAAAAAAH! WAAAAAAH! WAAAAAAH!”Translate
El Sr. Lobo tenía mucha hambre y estaba buscando comida. Caminaba cerca de una choza en el pueblo. El Lobo escuchó a un bebé llorar con fuerza.
The Mother said to the baby, “Hush Baby, Hush baby. Stop your crying otherwise I will give you to the wolf.”Translate
La Madre le dijo al bebé: “Silencio, bebé. Silencio, bebé. Deja de llorar, de lo contrario te entregaré al Lobo.”.
The wolf was very happy. He was going to get a baby for lunch today and that too for free. He went near the window and sat down happily.Translate
El Lobo se alegró. Iba a tener un bebé para el almuerzo de hoy y gratis. Se acercó a la ventana y se sentó contento.
The baby did not stop crying. The baby cried and cried but the mother did not give the baby to the wolf. The wolf was waiting the entire day.
In the end of the day, the mother was putting the baby to sleep.Translate
El bebé no dejaba de llorar. El bebé lloró y lloró, pero la Madre no se lo entregó al Lobo. El Lobo estuvo esperando todo el día.
Al final del día, la Madre estaba poniendo el bebé a dormir.
“Go to sleep, baby, go to sleep. Don’t worry about the wolf. Daddy is watching you. Our dogs are watching you. Daddy will kill the wolf if he is near you.”Translate
“Duerme, bebé, duerme. No te preocupes por el Lobo. Papi te está mirando. Nuestros perros te están mirando. Papi matará al Lobo si se acerca a ti.”
The daddy and the dogs just saw the wolf at that very moment. The wolf had to run to save his own life from the man and the dogs.Translate
El papá y los perros vieron al Lobo en ese mismo momento. El Lobo tuvo que correr para salvar su vida del hombre y de los perros.
Moral: “Do not believe everything you hear.”Translate
Moraleja: “No creas todo lo que oyes.”
