‘Grapes are Sour’

A hungry fox wandered in the deep woods the whole day in search of food. The limp on its left foot made things worse.
As the day began to fade, it reached a vineyard with trees bearing ripe grapes hanging on it.
The fox made up its mind to give a try. It jumped from the ground towards the fruit to catch hold.
The first attempt did fail, but the fox did not surrender. It gathered more strength before attempting the next try.
Again it missed the target. The exhausted animal made several tries before the sunset.
At last, the tiresome fox decides to quit. While walking away from the vineyard, it murmured, ” the grapes are sour and not ripe to eat”!.
