双语美文欣赏:A box full of kisses

2016-09-09    来源:环球教育广州学校    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

The story goes that some time ago, a man punished his 3-year-old daughter for wasting a roll of gold wrapping paper. Money was tight and he became infuriated when the child tried to decorate a box to put under the Christmas tree. Nevertheless, the little girl brought the gift to her father the next morning and said, "This is for you, Daddy.”

有这样一个故事,爸爸因为三岁的女儿浪费了一卷金色的包装纸而惩罚了她。家里很缺钱,当孩子想要用包装纸装饰一个挂在圣诞树上的盒子时,爸爸生气了。然而,第二天早上小女孩把盒子作为礼物送给了爸爸,“这是给你的,爸爸。”

The man was embarrassed by his earlier overreaction, but his anger flared again when he found out the box was empty. He yelled at her, stating, "Don't you know, when you give someone a present, there is supposed to be something inside? The little girl looked up at him with tears in her eyes and cried, "Oh, Daddy, it's not empty at all. I blew kisses into the box. They're all for you, Daddy."

女儿的这个行为让爸爸感到尴尬。但是当他发现盒子是空的时候,他的怒火再一次燃烧了。他对女儿喊道,“难道你不知道给别人礼物的时候,里面应该放有东西吗?”多女孩抬头看着父亲,眼里含着泪水,“爸爸,盒子不是空的。我把吻放在了盒子里,都是给你的,爸爸。”

The father was crushed. He put his arms around his little girl, and he begged for her forgiveness. Only a short time later, an accident took the life of the child. It is also told that her father kept that gold box by his bed for many years and, whenever he was discouraged, he would take out an imaginary kiss and remember the love of the child who had put it there.

爸爸感动极了,他搂住女儿,恳请她的原谅。之后不久,一场事故夺走了小女孩的生命。据说,父亲便将那个小金盒子放在床头,一直陪伴着他的余生。无论何时他感到气馁或者遇到难办的事情,他就会打开礼盒,取出一个假想的吻,记起漂亮女儿给予了自己特殊的爱。

In a very real sense, each one of us, as humans beings, have been given a gold container filled with unconditional love and kisses... from our children, family members, friends, and God. There is simply no other possession, anyone could hold, more precious than this.

从一个非常真实的意义上说,我们每个人都被赠与过一个无形的金色礼盒,那里面装满了来自子女,家人,朋友及上帝无条件的爱与吻。人们所能拥有的最珍贵的礼物莫过于此了。
