The fable is below:
The Fox and the Crane
A Fox invited a Crane to supper and provided only soup poured into a wide flat bowl. The soup fell out of the long bill of the Crane at every mouthful, and the Fox found this very funny. The Crane, in his turn, asked the Fox to dine with him, and set before her a bowl with a long narrow mouth. The Crane could easily insert his neck and enjoy its contents, but the Fox was unable to eat, because she did not have a long beak to reach the soup. The Crane thought this a fitting punishment for the way the Fox had treated him.
Theme: Treat others as you would like to be treated.
