<     >        友 谊 的 颜 色  

  Once upon a time the colors of the world started to quarrel.
  All claimed that they were the best.
  The most important.
  The most useful.
  The favorite.   
  Green said:
  "Clearly I am the most important. I am the sign of life and of hope. I was chosen for grass, trees and leaves. Without me, all animals would die. Look over the countryside and you will see that I am in the majority."   绿色说:
  Blue interrupted:
  "You only think about the earth, but consider the sky and the sea. It is the water that is the basis of life and drawn up by the clouds from the deep sea. The sky gives space and peace and serenity. Without my peace, you would all be nothing."   兰色打断了它的话:
  Yellow chuckled:
  "You are all so serious. I bring laughter, gaiety, and warmth into the world. The sun is yellow, the moon is yellow, the stars are yellow. Every time you look at a sunflower, the whole world starts to smile. Without me there would be no fun."   黄色咯咯地笑出了声:
  Orange started next to blow her trumpet:
  "I am the color of health and strength. I may be scarce, but I am precious for I serve the needs of human life. I carry the most important vitamins. Think of carrots, pumpkins, oranges, mangoes, and papayas. I don't hang around all the time, but when I fill the sky at sunrise or sunset, my beauty is so striking that no one gives another thought to any of you."   橙色马上开始自吹自擂:
  Red could stand it no longer he shouted out:
  "I am the ruler of all of you. I am blood - life's blood! I am the color of danger and of bravery. I am willing to fight for a cause. I bring fire into the blood. Without me, the earth would be as empty as the moon. I am the color of passion and of love, the red rose, the poinsettia and the poppy."   红色再也忍不下去了,他喊道:
  Purple rose up to his full height:
  He was very tall and spoke with great pomp: "I am the color of royalty and power. Kings, chiefs, and bishops have always chosen me for I am the sign of authority and wisdom. People do not question me! They listen and obey."   紫色站起身来:
  Finally Indigo spoke, much more quietly than all the others, but with just as much determination:
  "Think of me. I am the color of silence. You hardly notice me, but without me you all become superficial. I represent thought and reflection, twilight and deep water. You need me for balance and contrast, for prayer and inner peace."   最后,靛青说话了,他的声音比其他人都轻,但却比其他人都斩钉截铁:
  And so the colors went on boasting, each convinced of his or her own superiority. Their quarreling became louder and louder. Suddenly there was a startling flash of bright lightening thunder rolled and boomed. Rain started to pour down relentlessly. The colors crouched down in fear, drawing close to one another for comfort.   这样一来,颜色们就不停地自夸,每个人都深信自己无比优越。他们的争吵声越来越大。突然,电闪雷鸣。雨无情地倾盆而下。颜色们惊恐地蜷缩起来,彼此挤在一起捱过着恐怖的时刻。
  In the midst of the clamor, rain began to speak:
  "You foolish colors, fighting amongst yourselves, each trying to dominate the rest. Don't you know that you were each made for a special purpose, unique and different? Join hands with one another and come to me."   在一片喧嚣声中,雨开始说话了:
  Doing as they were told, the colors united and joined hands.
  The rain continued:
  "From now on, when it rains, each of you will stretch across the sky in a great bow of color as a reminder that you can all live in peace. The Rainbow is a sign of hope for tomorrow." And so, whenever a good rain washes the world, and a Rainbow appears in the sky, let us remember to appreciate one another.   颜色们按照着雨的话,团结在一起,携起手来。
  “从现在开始,每次下雨的时候你们都要变成一个巨大的彩色弓形横跨天空,以证明你们能够和平相处。彩虹就是未来希望的标志。”所以,每当大雨冲刷这个世界时,彩虹都会出现在天空,让我们记住彼此要珍惜。 <     >
