男孩和树 A Boy and His Tree

A long time ago, there was a huge apple tree. A little boy loved to come and play around it every day. He climbed to the treetop, ate the apples, and took a nap under the shadow ... He loved the tree and the tree loved to play with him.

很久以前,有一棵很大的苹果树。一个小男孩每天都喜欢来到树旁玩耍。他爬上树顶,吃苹果,在树荫下打盹……他爱这棵树,大树也爱和他一起玩耍。

Time went by...The little boy had grown up and he no longer played around the tree.

时光飞逝……小男孩长大了。他不再到树旁来玩耍。

One day, the boy came back to the tree and looked sad. “Come and play with me.” The tree asked the boy.

一天,男孩回到树旁,看起来很悲伤。“来和我玩吧!”大树对男孩说道。

“I am no longer a kid. I don't play around trees anymore.” The boy replied, “I want toys. I need money to buy them.” “Sorry, but I don't have money. But you can pick all my apples and sell them. So, you will have money.” The boy was so excited. He picked all the apples on the tree and left happily. The boy didn't come back after he picked the apples. The tree was sad.

“我已经不是小孩子了,我不会再到树下玩耍了,”男孩答道,“我想要玩具,我需要钱买玩具。”“很遗憾,我没有钱。但你可以把我身上的苹果全部摘下来拿去卖掉,这样你就有钱了。”男孩非常兴奋。他把树上的苹果全部摘了下来,然后高兴地离开了。从那以后,男孩再没有回来。大树很伤心。

One day, the boy returned and the tree was so excited. “Come and play with me.” The tree said. “I don't have time to play. I have to work for my family. We need a house for shelter. Can you help me?” “Sorry, but I don't have a house. But you can cut off my branches to build your house.” So the boy cut all the branches of the tree and left happily.

一天,男孩回来了,大树很兴奋。“来和我玩吧。”大树说。“我没有时间玩耍,我得为我的家庭工作。我们需要一栋房子来遮风挡雨,你能帮我吗?”“很遗憾,我没有房子。但是,你可以把我的树枝砍下来拿去盖房子。”于是,男孩把所有的树枝都砍了下来,兴高采烈地离开了。

The tree was glad to see him happy but the boy didn't appear since then. The tree was again lonely and sad. One hot summer day, the boy returned and the tree was delighted. “Come and play with me!” The tree said.

看到男孩高兴,大树也很开心。但是,从那以后,男孩再也没有出现过。大树又孤独了,很伤心。在一个炎炎夏日,男孩又回到了树旁,大树很高兴。“来和我玩吧!”树说。

“I am sad and getting old. I want to go sailing to relax myself. Can you give me a boat?” “Use my trunk to build the boat. You can sail and be happy.” So the boy cut the tree trunk to make a boat. He went sailing and did not show up for a long time.

“我很难过,我老了。我想去航海放松一下。你能不能给我一条船啊?”“用我的树干去造一条船吧,这样你就能航海了,你会快乐的。”于是,男孩把树干砍倒拿去造船。他航海去了,很长一段时间都不曾露面。

Finally, the boy returned after he left for so many years. “Sorry, my boy. But I don't have anything for you anymore. No more apples for you.” the tree said. “I don't have teeth to bite.” The boy replied. “No more trunk for you to climb on.” “I am too old for that now.” the boy said. “I really want to give you something...the only thing left is my dying roots.” The tree said with tears. “I don't need much now, just a place to rest. I am tired after all these years.” The boy replied. “Good! Old tree roots are the best place to lean on and rest. Come here, please sit down with me and have a rest.” The boy sat down and the tree was glad and smiled with tears...

多年以后,男孩终于回来了。“很遗憾,我的孩子,我再也没有任何东西可以给你了。不再有苹果给你了。”大树说。“我没有牙齿,咬不动苹果。”男孩答道。“不再有树干给你爬了。”“我老得爬不上去了。”男孩回答。“我真的想给你一些东西……我剩下的就只有这个要干死的树墩。”大树含泪说道。“我现在不再需要什么东西,只想有个地方休息就可以了。经过了这些年,我太累了。”男孩答道。“太好了!老树墩就是倚着休息的最好地方。过来,坐下来和我一起休息吧。”男孩坐了下来,大树很开心,含泪而笑……

This is a story of everyone. The tree is our parent. When we were young, we loved to play with Mom and Dad. When we grow up, we leave them, and only come to them when we need something or when we are in trouble. No matter what, parents will always be there and give everything they could to make us happy. We may think that the boy is cruel to the tree but that's how all of us are treating our parents.

这是一个属于我们每个人的故事。那棵树是我们的父母。我们小的时候,喜欢和爸爸妈妈一起玩……长大以后,我们便离开了他们,我们只有在需要父母亲时,或是遇到困难的时候,才会去找他们。在任何情况下,父母总是有求必应,力所能及地奉献自己的一切让我们幸福。也许你会觉得那个男孩对大树很残忍,但是我们又何尝不是这样对待自己父母的呢?
