The tame donkey was sleek and fat. During the summer he fed on the rich meadow grass while in winter he was given corn and hay to eat.
可那头家驴却肥肥壮壮的。夏天,牧场里丰美的鲜草可以任它享用:冬天,有人为它准备了谷物和千草,
There was always a pail of fresh water for him to drink and at night he was shut safely in a stable. How lucky you are, said the wild donkey, I wish I could live like you.
而且总有一桶它可以随时饮用的干净水:晚上,它可以在牲口棚里放心地过夜。怕你太幸运了,一野驴说,我真羡慕你那种生活。
A few days later the wild donkey was once more foraging on the hillside. Looking down he saw the tame donkey walking slowly along the road, carrying a heavy load of wood.
数天后,野驴又来到山坡上吃草。它俯身向山下望去,看到人家驴正驮着沉重的木头,缓慢地沿着路边走着。
As he watched, the tame donkey paused to enrich at a thistle growing by the roadside, immediately his driver began to shout and to beat him with a stick.
驴想停下来吃路边的蓟草,赶驴人马上对它大吼,并用棍子抽打它。我不想过你那样的生活了,
Ive changed my mind about your way of life, thought the wild donkey .I see that you have to pay heavily for the corn and hay they gives you.
野驴心想,我终于知道了,要得到主人的谷物和干草,你必须付出沉重的代价。 内容来自美文网
