Do you hear that, my friends, do you hear that?
Echoes…of Ancient Aesop…
A soul that has lived on forever.
His fables still teach us, his spirit stirs the air.
A little mouse gnawing, a great lion roaring,
The Tortoise and the Hare.

Come back to us, wise old Aesop,
Come hither, if you will.
Your fables and stories live on with us still.
Show us your conquests, but also your struggles.
The Adventures of Aesop.
Your life was lived for all of us.

Fable by fable, moral by moral,
Let us live his life over again,
For he is HERE.
Look around, my friends…
You will find him everywhere.
