The sun had just set as she raised her head above the waves; but the clouds were tinted with crimson and gold, and through the glimmering twilight beamed the evening star in all its beauty. The sea was calm, and the air mild and fresh. A large ship, with three masts, lay becalmed on the water, with only one sail set; for not a breeze stiffed, and the sailors sat idle on deck or amongst the rigging.
当她把头伸出海面的时候,太阳已经下落了,可是所有的云块还是像玫瑰花和黄金似地发着光;同时,在这淡红的天上,大白星已经在美丽地、光亮地眨着眼睛。空气是温和的、新鲜的。海是非常平静,这儿停着一艘有三根桅杆的大船。船上只挂了一张帆,因为没有一丝儿风吹动。水手们正坐在护桅索的周围和帆桁的上面。

There was music and song on board; and, as darkness came on, a hundred colored lanterns were lighted, as if the flags of all nations waved in the air. The little mermaid swam close to the cabin windows; and now and then, as the waves lifted her up, she could look in through clear glass window-panes, and see a number of well-dressed people within. Among them was a young prince, the most beautiful of all, with large black eyes; he was sixteen years of age, and his birthday was being kept with much rejoicing.
这儿有音乐,也有歌声。当黄昏逐渐变得阴暗的时候,各色各样的灯笼就一起亮起来了。它们看起来就好像飘在空中的世界各国的旗帜。小人鱼一直向船窗那儿游去。每次当海浪把她托起来的时候,她可以透过像镜子一样的窗玻璃,望见里面站着许多服装华丽的男子;但他们之中最美的一位是那有一对大黑眼珠的王子:无疑地,他的年纪还不到十六岁。今天是他的生日,正因为这个缘故,今天才这样热闹。

The sailors were dancing on deck, but when the prince came out of the cabin, more than a hundred rockets rose in the air, making it as bright as day. The little mermaid was so startled that she dived under water; and when she again stretched out her head, it appeared as if all the stars of heaven were falling around her, she had never seen such fireworks before. Great suns spurted fire about, splendid fireflies flew into the blue air, and everything was reflected in the clear, calm sea beneath. The ship itself was so brightly illuminated that all the people, and even the smallest rope, could be distinctly and plainly seen. And how handsome the young prince looked, as he pressed the hands of all present and smiled at them, while the music resounded through the clear night air.
水手们在甲板上跳着舞。当王子走出来的时候,有一百多发火箭一齐向天空射出。天空被照得如同自昼,因此小人鱼非常惊恐起来,赶快沉到水底。可是不一会儿她文把头伸出来了——这时她觉得好像满天的星星都在向她落下,她从来没有看到过这样的焰火。许多巨大的太阳在周围发出嘘嘘的响声,光耀夺目的大鱼在向蓝色的空中飞跃。这一切都映到这清明的、平静的海上。这船全身都被照得那么亮,连每根很小的绳子都可以看得出来,船上的人当然更可以看得清楚了。啊,这位年轻的王子是多么美丽啊!当音乐在这光华灿烂的夜里慢慢消逝的时候,他跟水手们握着手,大笑,微笑……


It was very late; yet the little mermaid could not take her eyes from the ship, or from the beautiful prince. The colored lanterns had been extinguished, no more rockets rose in the air, and the cannon had ceased firing; but the sea became restless, and a moaning, grumbling sound could be heard beneath the waves: still the little mermaid remained by the cabin window, rocking up and down on the water, which enabled her to look in. After a while, the sails were quickly unfurled, and the noble ship continued her passage; but soon the waves rose higher, heavy clouds darkened the sky, and lightning appeared in the distance. A dreadful storm was approaching; once more the sails were reefed, and the great ship pursued her flying course over the raging sea. The waves rose mountains high, as if they would have overtopped the mast; but the ship dived like a swan between them, and then rose again on their lofty, foaming crests.
夜已经很晚了,但是小人鱼没有办法把她的眼睛从这艘船和这位美丽的王子撇开。那些彩色的灯笼熄了,火箭不再向空中发射了,炮声也停止了。可是在海的深处起了一种嗡嗡和隆隆的声音。她坐在水上,一起一伏地漂着,所以她能看到船舱里的东西。可是船加快了速度:它的帆都先后张起来了。浪涛大起来了,沉重的乌云浮起来了,远处掣起闪电来了。啊,可怕的大风暴快要到来了!水手们因此都收下了帆。这条巨大的船在这狂暴的海上摇摇摆摆地向前急驶。浪涛像庞大的黑山似地高涨。它想要折断桅杆。可是这船像天鹅似的,一忽儿投进洪涛里面,一忽儿又在高大的浪头上抬起头来。

To the little mermaid this appeared pleasant sport; not so to the sailors. At length the ship groaned and creaked; the thick planks gave way under the lashing of the sea as it broke over the deck; the mainmast snapped asunder like a reed; the ship lay over on her side; and the water rushed in. The little mermaid now perceived that the crew were in danger; even she herself was obliged to be careful to avoid the beams and planks of the wreck which lay scattered on the water.
小人鱼觉得这是一种很有趣的航行,可是水手们的看法却不是这样。这艘船现在发出碎裂的声音;它粗厚的板壁被袭来的海涛打弯了。船桅像芦苇似的在半中腰折断了。后来船开始倾斜,水向舱里冲了进来。这时小人鱼才知道他们遭遇到了危险。她也得当心漂流在水上的船梁和船的残骸。
