Title of Aesop's Fables: The Eagle and the Kite

AN EAGLE, overwhelmed with sorrow, sat upon the branches of a
tree in company with a Kite. 'Why,' said the Kite, 'do I see you
with such a rueful look?' 'I seek,' she replied, 'a mate suitable
for me, and am not able to find one.' 'Take me,' returned the
Kite, 'I am much stronger than you are.' 'Why, are you able to
secure the means of living by your plunder?' 'Well, I have often
caught and carried away an ostrich in my talons.' The Eagle,
persuaded by these words, accepted him as her mate. Shortly
after the nuptials, the Eagle said, 'Fly off and bring me back
the ostrich you promised me.' The Kite, soaring aloft into the
air, brought back the shabbiest possible mouse, stinking from the
length of time it had lain about the fields. 'Is this,' said the
Eagle, 'the faithful fulfillment of your promise to me?' The Kite
replied, 'That I might attain your royal hand, there is nothing
that I would not have promised, however much I knew that I must
fail in the performance.'
