Unit:05  Making a difference Lesson 6: The truthful (honest, frank, open) dove (2)

Read more about the three birds and write answers to the following questions.

All this time the dove was listening (attending, hearing, concentrating) to her friend’s false (untrue, incorrect, wrong, dishonest) praises (admirations, commendations, acclaims). She was wondering (speculating, doubting, deliberating) how insincere (deceitful, dishonest, hypocritical) his praises were. The dove hung her head down and was quiet (silent, noiseless, soundless). The owl got impatient (annoyed, irritated, intolerant). He wanted to hear more praises. He looked at the dove and asked, “Don’t you have any good thing to say about me?” The bat joined (combined, added, united, linked) the owl, “Yes, don’t you have any words of praise for our kind host (inviter)?” The dove was ashamed of her friend bat and kept her eyes down. The owl urged (insisted, commended, advised, pressed) the dove, “Come on, say something!” 

The dove lifted (raised, lifted) her head slowly (gradually, unhurriedly, sluggishly, gently) and said, “Master (chief, dominant, main, directing, controlling) owl, thank you very much for the shelter (housing, lodging) you have given me, thank you for the food you have offered (presented, given, provided) me. I will remain (stay, continue, persist) ever (always, forever, endlessly) grateful (thankful, obliged, glad) for this”.
