英语美文正文:

Once, there was a huge tree with a broad trunk and innumerable branches right in the middle of a dry land. The tree gave rest and shelter to hundreds and thousands of travelers. Being located near four towns, and many villages, the tree was an ideal meeting point for travelers.

One day, two travelers reached the tree after a long time of walking. Their destination was one of the towns nearby. It was a hot and sunny day, and the travelers were very happy to take a rest under the tree. Exhausted, they slumped under the tree. They slept for a while, enjoying the cool shade and the soft breeze.

After a while, one of the travelers got hungry. They had no food with them. The hungry traveler looked up at the tree, to see if there was any fruit. Finding none, he began to curse the tree.“Oh, this is just a useless tree and it has nothing to feed us, not even a fruit or even nuts! It is of no use!”

The other traveler comforted him and asked him to stay cool. However, the hungry man continuing cursing the tree.

The tree, which could not tolerate the cursing words of the traveler, said in a sad yet strong voice,“You can’t be so ungrateful to me. Just think of your condition when you reached here in the hot and dry sun! I offered you a cool and comfortable place to rest and sleep with a soothing breeze. If I was not here, you would have died now! I saved your life from the hot sun, but you humiliate me!”

The traveler realized his mistake and apologized to the tree.

英语美文中文翻译:

从前,在一片干涸的土地中央,有这一颗枝繁叶茂的树。这棵树为成千上万的旅行者提供了休息和栖身的场所。这棵树坐落在四个城镇和许多村庄附近,是旅行者最理想的聚集点。

有一天,两位旅行者经过走了很长的路程,来到了树前。他们的目的地是附近的一个城镇。这是一个炎热的大晴天,旅行者们很高兴在树下面休息一下。他们精疲力竭,瘫倒在树下。他们睡了一会儿,享受着阵阵的凉爽和轻柔的微风。

过了一会儿,其中一个旅行者饿了。他们身上没有食物。饥饿的旅行者抬头望着那棵树,看是否有水果可摘。他发现树上什么也没有,就开始咒骂那棵树:“哎,这是一棵无用的树,它没有什么可供我们吃的,甚至连水果或坚果都没有!太没用了!“

另一个旅行者安慰他,让他保持冷静。然而,饥饿的人继续咒骂着这棵树。

这棵树,容忍不了旅行者的咒骂,用悲伤而强烈的声音说:“你不能对我这么的忘恩负义。想想你从又晒又干的太阳底下到这里的情形。我给你提供了一个凉爽舒适的地方,让你在微风中休息和睡觉。如果我不在这里,你早就死了!我把你从烈日中救了出来,你却来羞辱我!”

旅行者意识到了自己的错误,向树道了歉。

本篇英语美文告诫我们,要心存感激,不要以为别人对自己的付出是应该的,尤其不能忘恩负义。
