A punto de morir de sed, un caracol descansa al pie de un árbol que, aburrido de permanecer años en la misma posición, se alegra cuando siente que algo acaricia sus raíces, y ríe tanto que mueve sus ramas. Un pájaro que no sabe volar vive en la copa del árbol; al sacudirse las ramas, para no caer, aletea con fuerza y vuela, y choca con una nube aburrida de estar horas dando sombra al mismo sitio; el choque le provoca risa hasta el llanto, y las lágrimas que caen dan de beber al caracol.

On the verge of dying of thirst, a snail rests at the foot of a tree that, bored with spending years in the same position, is happy when it feels something caressing its roots, and it laughs so much that it moves its branches. A bird that does not know how to fly lives in the top of the tree; shaking off the branches, so as not to fall, it flaps its wings strongly and flies, colliding with a cloud bored from spending hours shading the same spot; the shock makes him laugh until he cries, and the tears that fall give the snail a drink.
