《Inch by Inch 》

《一寸又一寸》

02

One day a hungry robin saw an inchworm, green as an emerald, sitting on a twig. He was about to gobble him up.

有一天,一只饥饿的知更鸟看见了一条一寸虫,碧绿绿的,像是一小块祖母绿宝石,停在小树枝上,它正要一口吞掉它。

03

"Don't eat me. I am an inchworm. I am useful. I measure things." "Is that so!" said the robin. "Then measure my tail!"

“不要吃我,我是一寸虫。我很有用,我会量东西。”“真的吗?”知更鸟说,“那你来量一量我的尾巴!”

04

"That's easy," said the inchworm."One, two, three, four, five inches."

“那容易,”知更鸟说,“一、二、三、四、五寸。”

05

"Just think," said the robin,"my tail is five inches long!" And with the inchworm, he flew to where other birds needed to be measured.

“真的呀!”知更鸟说,“我的尾巴是五寸长!”然后,它载着一寸虫,飞去别处找其他要量一量的鸟。

06

The inchworm measured the neck of the flamingo.

一寸虫量了火烈鸟的颈子。

One morning, the nightingale met the inchworm.

有一天早晨,夜莺遇见了一寸虫。

"Measure my song," said the nightingale.

“量我的歌。”夜莺说。

"But how can I do that?" said the inchworm."I measure things, not songs."

“我要怎么量歌呢?”一寸虫说,“我只量东西,不量歌。”

"Measure my song or I'll eat you for breakfast," said the nightingale.

“量我的歌,要不然我把你当早点吃掉。”夜莺说。

Then the inchworm had an idea.

于是,一寸虫想到了一个点子。

"I'll try," he said,"go ahead and sing."

“我愿意试一试,”它说,“开口唱吧!”

The nightingale sang and the inchworm measured away.

夜莺开始唱,一寸虫动身量。

He measured and measured...

它量啊量,量啊量...
