Der Adler und die Eule

Language: German (Deutsch)

Der Adler Jupiters und Pallas Eule stritten.
"Abscheulich Nachtgespenst!"-- "Bescheidner, darf ich bitten.
Der Himmel heget mich und dich;
Was bist du also mehr, als ich?"
Der Adler sprach: Wahr ist's, im Himmel sind wir beide;
Doch mit dem Unterscheide:
Ich kam durch eignen Flug,
Wohin dich deine Göttin trug.
