儿童双语童话-七只乌鸦(一)

There was a man who had seven sons, but he had no daughter, greatly though he longed for one. At last his wife told him that they could again expect a child and, sure enough, when it was born it was a baby girl. There was great rejoicing, but the child was weak and puny, so weak that it had to be christened at once. The father told one of the boys to go quickly to the spring and fetch christening water; the other six ran along with him, and because each of them wanted to be the first to dip the jug into the well, it fell in and sank. So there they stood and didn't know what to do, and none of them dared go home. When they didn't come back their father got impatient and said:" I'll wager they've been playing some game again and forgotten all about it, the godless brats." He was afraid the little girl would have to die unbaptized, and in his rage he cried out:" I wish those boys would all turn into ravens." He'd scarcely spoken the words when he heard a whirring of wings in the air overhead, looked up and saw seven coal-black ravens flying away.
    有个人,他有七个儿子,他很希望有个女儿,可是怎么盼也没有。好不容易,妻子又怀孕了。生下来一看,果然是个女孩。他们非常高兴。但是孩子太小,又非常虚弱,非得马上急救洗礼不可。父亲打发一个男孩立即到井台去打洗礼水,其余六个也跟着去了。在井台旁,他们都争着先打水,结果罐子掉进井里,沉了下去。他们不知道该怎么办才好,都真楞楞地站在那儿,谁也不敢回家了。父亲在家里等得不耐烦了,就说:“我敢说这些无法无天的孩子一定是贪玩,把打水的事给忘了。”他担心女孩子不经洗礼会死,就生气地大声喊起来:“淘气鬼,都变成乌鸦才好呢!”这话刚出口,就听到头顶有“吧哒吧哒”鸟儿拍打翅膀的声音。他抬头一看,只见空中有七只漆黑漆黑的乌鸦飞过去了。
    The parents were unable now to take back the curse, and yet, grief-stricken as they were at the loss of their seven sons, they look some comfort from their beloved little daughter, who soon got well and strong and became more beautiful with every day that passed. For a long time the little girl didn't even know that she had had brothers, for her parents took care not to mention them, but one day by chance she heard some people talking about her. "The girl's beautiful, of course," they were saying, "but she's to blame really for her seven brothers' misfortune." This made her very sad, and she went to her father and mother and asked whether it was true then that she had had brothers and what had become of them. So now it was no longer possible for her parents to conceal from her what had happened, though they told her that it had been God's will and that her birth had only been the innocent occasion for it. But day after day she was conscience-stricken about it, and felt that it was her duty to free her brothers from the spell again. The thought gave her no peace, so in the end she left home secretly and went off into the wide world to try and trace her brothers wherever they might be, and rescue them at whatever cost. She took nothing with her but a ring belonging to her parents to remember them by, a loaf of bread for when she was hungry, a jug of water for when she was thirsty, and a little chair for when she was tired.
    这咒语再也不能收回了,父母失去了七个儿子,心里非常悲伤,可是有了个可爱的女儿,看到她很快地结实起来,长得一天比一天漂亮,他们心里多少还得到一些安慰。女孩子一点也不知道哥哥们的事,父母也倍加小心,不提此事。可是,有一天她偶然听到人们议论说:“那女孩子,别看长得漂亮,她七个哥哥就是因为她才倒霉的。”女孩子非常难过,就去问父母:“我有哥哥吗?要是有,他们都到哪里去了?”这样,父母再也瞒不住了,只好说:“那是老天爷的安排啊!你恰巧生在那个时候。这可不是你的罪过!”尽管如此,女孩子每天仍感到痛苦。她想,她应该设法救哥哥们,使他们摆脱咒语。她再也不能平静了,于是,她悄悄地从家里溜出来,下决心不管遇到什么困难,不管到哪里,也得找到他们。她从家里只带了一只小戒指,是父母给她作纪念的;一块面包,是肚子饿的时候吃的;一壶水,是渴的时候喝的;还有一只小凳子,是疲乏的时候坐着用的。
