外国寓言故事(英文寓言小故事)

One hot summer day a thirsty crow was looking for some water to drink. There had been no rain for several weeks and all the puddles and ponds he usually drank from were dried up into jigsaw patterns.

一个炎热的夏天,一只口渴的乌鸦在找水喝。几个星期没下雨了,他经常喝的水坑和池塘都干裂了。

At last he saw a jug standing outside the back door of a house. He poked his head inside. He could smell the water, he could see the water, but he could not reach the water. The jug was tall and even when he put his head right in and jumped off the ground it was still too deep for him.

最后他看到一所房子的后门外有一个罐子。他把头探了进去。他能闻到水的味道,他能看见水,但他够不着水。水壶很高,即使他把头伸进去,从地上跳下来,水壶对他来说还是太深了。

He stood on the step for a minute.

“Perhaps I could break the top of the jug off with my beak,” he thought.

He tried. Nothing happened.

他在台阶上站了一会儿。

“也许我可以用我的嘴把罐子的顶部弄破,”他想。

他试过了,但没什么用。

“Perhaps I could turn the jug on its side to that the water runs out,” he thought.

“Ah,” cawed the crow aloud.” I know what to do.”

他想:“也许我可以把水壶的一边转过来,这样水流出来了。”

“啊,”乌鸦大声叫道,“我知道该怎么办了。”

The path at the back of the house was covered in small pebbles. The crow hopped off the step and picked a pebble up in his beak. Then he hopped up and dropped the pebble into the jug. Back and forth he went, dropping pebble after pebble into the jug. Gradually the pebbles filled the bottom of the jug and pushed the water higher and higher. At last, after at least a hundred trips up and down the steps, the crow was able to dip his tired beak into cool water and drink his fill.

房子后面的小路上布满了小石子。乌鸦跳下台阶,用嘴叼起一块鹅卵石。然后他跳起来,把鹅卵石扔进罐子里。他走来走去,把一颗又一颗的小石子丢进罐子里。渐渐地,鹅卵石填满了水壶的底部,把水推得越来越高。最后,乌鸦在台阶上来回跑了至少一百次之后,终于能把它疲惫的喙浸到凉水里,喝了个够。
