093 George Washington and His Hatchet 乔治 华盛顿和他的斧子

When George Washington was quite a little boy, his father gave him a hatchet. It was bright and new, and George took great delight in going about and chopping things with it.
乔治?顿小时候,他的父亲送给他一把斧子。这把斧子崭新发亮,乔治非常喜欢。于是他高兴的拿着斧子四处溜达,用它砍东西。

He ran into the garden, and there he saw a tree which seemed to say to him, “Come and cut me down!”
他跑进花园,看见一棵树,这棵树好像在对他说:“来吧,来砍倒我吧!”

George had often seen his father’s men chop down the great trees in the forest, and he thought that it would be fine sport to see this tree fall with a crash to the ground. So he set to work with the little hatchet, and as the tree was a very small one, it did not take long to lay it low.
乔治经常看到他父亲的工人们在森林里把大树砍倒。他想,砍到这棵树轰隆一声倒在地上一定很有意思。于是乔治用他的小斧头开始砍了起来。因为这颗树很小,所以他没花多长时间就把它砍倒了。

Soon after that ,his father came home.
没过多久,他的父亲回家了。

“Who has been cutting my fine young cherry tree?”
“是谁把我那颗可爱的小樱桃树给砍了?”

He cried. “it was the only tree of this kind in this country ,and it cost me a great meal of money.”
他喊道,“这是本地唯一一颗这种品种的樱桃树,是我花了很多钱才买来的。”

He was very angry when he came into the house.
他进屋时非常生气。

“if only I knew who killed that cherry tree, ” he cried, ”I would---yes, I would---”
他喊道“只要让我发现是谁砍了那颗樱桃树,我就要---是的,我就要---”

“father!” cried little George. “I will tell you the truth about it . I chopped the tree down with my hatchet.”
“爸爸!”小乔治喊道,“告诉您是怎么回事儿,是我用我的斧子把它砍倒的。”

His father forgot his angry.
父亲的气消了。
