Find the highlighted words in the Word Bank.


A peacock spreading its gorgeous tail mocked a crane that passed by, ridiculing the ashen colour of its feathers and saying, "I am robed, like a king, in gold and purple and all the colours of the rainbow; while you have not a bit of colour on your wings."

"True," said the crane, "but I soar to the heights of heaven and lift up my voice to the stars, while you walk below, like a cock, among the birds of the dunghill."
