The Moving Tree

飘移不定的小树

Once there was a little tree that looked around and saw the other, bigger trees.

从前,有一棵小树,他整天东张西望,看着周围那些比他高大的大树。

They all look taller than me, thought the little tree to himself.

“他们看上去都比我高,”小树在心里对自己说。

He thought it was the soil's fault. So he lifted up his roots and moved over to the part of the garden which he thought had better soil.

他想,肯定是土壤不好。于是他抽出根须,来到花园的另一边, 在他看来,这儿的土壤更肥沃一些。

A few weeks later the little tree looked up again. The other trees were growing and he was still no bigger.

几个星期过去了,小树看看四周,别的树都在长大,而自己却没有丝毫变化。

He blamed the lack of sunlight and moved to a sunnier spot.

他埋怨阳光不够,又移到光照更充足的地方。

Time and again, the little tree found reasons for his not growing. He moved from point to point, always picking up his roots. Always moving.Always searching for the right soil, water, fertiliser , sunshine and other more favourable conditions.

一次又一次,小树总能找到他长不大的原因。他老是移来移去, 拔出根须,从没停下。他一心找寻着更肥沃的土壤、更丰沛的水分、更多的肥料、更充足的阳光和其他更有利的条件。

And he stayed stunted .

但他依旧矮小。

The other trees stayed in one place and built strong roots. Their barks grew solid. Their branches soared .

别的树始终留在一个地方,根深蒂固,外皮结实,枝繁叶茂。

And the little tree stayed little.

小树却依旧很小。
