英汉对照:鹦雀笑鹏

As the legend goes, during ancient times, in the expansive opencountry of North China, there was a kind of birds called”rocs”.
 
The roc was very huge, with its back like a big mountain, and itswings like a stretch of cloud which could cover the sky. When itspread its wings, it could break through a storm and soar at aheight of 90,000 li (1/2 kilometre) in the sky towards the sea inthe south.
 
A small bird called the quail1 bouncedon the ground, free and happy. It looked up at the roc soaring inthe sky and couldn’t help laughing: “Hey, see how cocky you are!Look at me, one jump can take me over 10 chi.How delightful2!Every day I come and go amid these weedsand thickets3 andfly freely. Don’t I fly quite well too? But, where can you fly toanyway?”
 
传说,古时候中国北方的原野上有一种鸟,它的名字叫“鹏”。
 
鹏长得很大,背脊像一座大山,翅膀像一大片云,能把天空遮住。它张开翅膀能冲破风暴,在九万里高的天空中飞翔,一直飞向南方的大海。
 
有一只叫鹦雀的小鸟,在地上蹦蹦跳跳,自由自在,非常快活。它望着天空中展翅飞翔的大鹏,忍不住发笑,说:“咳,看你神气活现的!我呀,一蹦一跳,就有十几尺,多么痛快啊!我每天在这些杂草和树丛里,来来去去,自由飞翔,不也飞得挺好吗?可是,你又能飞到哪里去呢?”
