A fox was roaming around the countryside.He happened to pass through a vineyard.On seeing the lush grapes his mouth watered.First he lifted his head and stretched out to reach the grapes.He could not reach them.He felt the grapes to be higher.Then he stood on his hind legs and stretched.Again he could not reach them.Finally,he jumped up and up even then, he could not reach them.The grapes were too high to reach and the fox was to tired to try again.So,he left the place murmuring,"The grapes are sour.Who would eat sour grapes?".
