    The Grasshopper spends his summer playing in the sun, chirping, and having a good time. He has no thoughts of the cold, hungry days ahead. The Ant, however, is working instead of playing.   Aesop’s fable gets a Northern Chinese setting in this stiffly formal version. As the ants, “mindful of the winter to come,” work “to secure their home against the impending cold and snow,” Grasshopper idly enjoys watching the activities of the Emperor and his court—and so is caught flat when the court suddenly moves away to its winter quarters, and the ants too .
