Suddenly the fox hit upon a plan to have the piece of meat. Looking upward he said to the crow, “How are you, my dear friend?” The crow did not reply to the question of the fox. Then the fox again said to the crow, “How beautiful you are! God knows, how sweet your voice is!”

The crow became happy hearing the sweet words of the fox.  The fox again said, “It would be my pleasure if I could hear a song of your sweet voice”.
