The Dragonfly

蜻蜓

Once, in a small pond, in the muddy water under the lily pads , there lived a community of water beetles. They lived a simple and comfortable life in the pond with few disturbances and interruptions.

从前,在一个小池塘混浊的泥水里,在漂浮的睡莲叶子下面,住着一群水虿。它们过着简单而舒适的生活,与世无争,无人打扰。

Once in a while, sadness would come to the community when one of their fellow beetles would climb the stem of a lily pad and would never be seen again. They knew when this happened; their friend was dead, gone forever.

偶尔,当它们的一个伙伴爬上睡莲的叶柄,之后便不见了踪影时,整个水虿群便会陷入无尽的悲伤之中。它们认为,每当这样的事情发生,就意味着它们的朋友已经死去,永远地离开了它们。

Then, one day, one little water beetle felt an irresistible urge to climb up that stem. However, he was determined that he would not leave forever. He would come back and tell his friends what he had found at the top.

之后的一天,一只小水虿感到有一种难以抗拒的冲动在驱使着它爬到睡莲的叶柄上去。不过,他下定决心自己绝不会一去不复返。他一定要回来告诉他的朋友们他在上面的见闻。

When he reached the top and climbed out of the water onto the surface of the lily pad, he was so tired, and the sun felt so warm, that he decided he must take a nap. As he slept, his body changed and when he woke up, he had turned into a beautiful blue-tailed dragonfly with broad wings and a slender body designed for flying.

当他到达叶柄顶部,爬出水面,来到睡莲叶表时,他已筋疲力尽,而且太阳照在身上暖洋洋的,于是他决定小睡片刻。在他熟睡的时候,他的身体发生了变化。醒来时,他已经变成了一只漂亮的蓝尾巴蜻蜓,长着适于飞行的宽大的翅膀和纤细的身体。

So, fly he did! And, as he soared, he saw the beauty of a whole new world and a far superior way of life to what he had never known existed.

于是,他就真的飞了起来!当他在空中飞舞时,他看到了全新的美丽世界,看到了一种他从不知道的更优越的生活方式。

Then he remembered his beetle friends and how they were thinking by now he was dead. He wanted to go back to tell them, and explain to them that he was now more alive than he had ever been before. His life had been fulfilled rather than ended.

这时,他想起了他的水虿朋友们。他们现在一定以为他已经死 了。他想回去告诉他们,向他们解释眼下他比以前任何时候都更加生机勃勃。他的生命得到了升华而不是结束。

But, his new body would not go down into the water. He could not get back to tell his friends the good news. Then he understood that their time would come, when they, too, would know what he now knew.

但是他的新身体无法回到水中。他不能回去把这个好消息告诉他的朋友们。于是,他明白了,他们的那个时刻终会到来,到那时他们也会知道他现在所了解的一切。

So, he raised his wings and flew off into his joyous new life!

于是他舞动着双翅,飞向快乐的新生活!
