The Water Babies (2)

2006-08-11 13:18

  Tom suddenly found himself to be less than four inches long. The fairies had turned him into a water baby. He swam downstream, passing salmon going upstream. On the banks were men fishing. One of them fell into the swift current, rolled over and sank to the bottom of a deep hole. Tom saw that it was his old master, Mr. Grimes. Fairies carried the body away.

  突然间,汤姆发现自己缩到了不到4英寸长。仙女们已将他变成小水娃。他往下游,与逆流而上的鲑鱼擦身而过。溪边有人在钓鱼,其中一个掉进急流里,翻了个滚,沉入一个深深的洞底。汤姆看到那是他的老主人格兰姆斯先生。仙女们把他的躯体带走了。

  Tom reached the sea in the autumn. One day a man and a little girl were walking on the rocks at water's edge. She was Ellie, the same little girl Tom had seen in the great house. The man groped with his net in the weeds and caught little Tom by accident. Tom bit the man's finger and dropped back into the water. Excited, Ellie slipped and hit her head on a rock. That night, fairies came to her bed and carried her away.

  汤姆终于在秋天游到了大海。有一天,一个男人和一个小女孩在水边的岩石上行走。她叫埃利,就是汤姆在大宅里见到的小女孩。那个男人撒下网子在海草中搜索,碰巧把小汤姆抓了上来。汤姆咬了他的手指,趁机跳回水里。埃利很兴奋,没小心滑了一跤,头撞到一块岩石上。那天晚上,仙女们来到她床前将她带走了。

  Tom found many water babies living in the sea. A kind fairy lady visited them from time to time. But Tom was naughty: he teased the crabs and anemones and stole sweets from the fairy's cupboard. As punishment, he was turned into a sea urchin. The fairy also found a girl to give Tom some schooling.

  汤姆发现好多小水娃生活在海里,有个慈祥的仙女时常来探望他们。但是汤姆太顽皮了,常去戏弄螃蟹和海葵,还到仙女的橱柜里去偷糖果。他被处罚变成了海胆。那个仙女还找了一个女孩来给他上课。

  So she taught Tom every day of the week; only on Sundays she always went away home, and the kind fairy took her place. And, before she had taught many Sundays, his prickles had vanished quite away, and his skin was smooth and clean again.

  于是她每天都来教汤姆,只是每到星期日她总要回家,而由那个慈祥的仙女来代课。她代了不到几个星期日,汤姆身上的刺就渐渐消失了,皮肤又变得细嫩清洁了。

  "Dear me!" said the little girl; "why, I know you now. You are the same little chimney sweep who came into my bedroom. "Dear me!" cried Tom. "And I know you, too, now. You are the very little white lady whom I saw in bed."

  "天啊,"小女孩叫道,"咳,我现在认出你了。你就是那个闯进我卧室的扫烟囱的小孩。" "天啊,"汤姆也叫起来,"我现在也认出你了,你就是那个我看到躺在床上的一身白的小姐。"
