Storyboard Text

  • Long ago, on a high hill in Greece, lived Philemon and Baucis.
  • They had many hives of bees from which they got honey, and many vines from which they gathered grapes.
  • The old couple had as much as they needed and were always ready to share whatever they had with any one in want. No stranger was ever turned from their door.
  • At the foot of the hill lay a beautiful village, with pleasant roads and rich pasture lands all around.
  • One evening, just at dark, two beggars came into the valley. They stopped at every house and asked for food and a place to sleep; but the people were too busy or too tired. 
  • With sore feet and being very tired, the two beggars came to the hut of Philemon and Baucis. These good people had eaten very little, for they were saving their best food for Zeus.
