中国古代寓言:刻凤凰

  中国古代寓言故事

  ——

  刻凤凰

  有一次,鲁班在刻一只凤凰。

  Once,Luban was carving a Phoenix.

  慕名前来欣赏他雕刻艺术的人们,几乎把他的屋子都挤满了。大家屏声息气,目不转睛地盯住他那双灵活地手,巴望着凤凰在眼前出现。

  The people who came to admire his carving almost filled his house.Everyone held their breath,fixed their eyes on his flexible hands,and looked at the Phoenix before their eyes.

  凤凰的头顶刚刚显露,脚爪还未伸出,彩色的羽毛还没有雕出来,人们就纷纷议论起来:

  “你看那身子,哪里像凤凰,就和老鹰差不多。”

  “哎呀,那也算凤凰的头吗?你说它是野鸭,我也相信的。”

  The Phoenix's head had just been revealed,its claws had not yet reached out,and its colorful feathers had not yet been carved out.

  "Look at that body.It's like an eagle.

  "Oh,is that the head of the Phoenix?You said it was a wild duck,and I believed it.

  大家取了一阵,一哄而散。

  The people made fun of it for a while,and then dispersed.

  凤凰在鲁班手里诞生了。它的头顶像美丽的云朵般高耸着;红艳艳的脚爪闪电一般在树枝上放射光芒;它沐着朝阳,披着彩霞,伸展着翠色的双翼,像要绕着屋柱飞翔;人们还仿佛听见凤凰的翅子在轻轻地拍击。

  Phoenix was born in Luban's hand.Its head rose like a beautiful cloud;its red feet shone like lightning on the branches;it bathed in the morning sun,covered with rosy clouds,stretched out its green wings,as if to fly around the pillars;and it seemed to hear the wings of the Phoenix patting lightly.

  大家又聚拢来,围着鲁班,说着各种各样赞美的话。

  Everyone gathered around Luban and said all kinds of praise.
