一只眼睛的鹿

Story Brief

The One-Eyed Doe

 

A doe that had but one eye used to graze near the sea. So that she might be more secure from attack, she kept her eye towards the land against the approach of the hunters and her blind side towards the sea, whence she feared no danger. But some sailors rowing by in a boat and seeing her aimed at her from the water and shot her. With her last gasp she sighed to herself: “Ill-fated creature that I am! I was safe on the land side whence I expected to be attacked, but find an enemy in the sea to which I most looked for protection.”

Our troubles often come from the quarter where we least expect them.

一只眼睛的鹿

一只小鹿正在吃草,一个猎人偷偷地靠近了,拉开弓箭对准了他。警觉的小鹿刚要逃跑,可是已经太迟了,猎人的箭飞过来,正好射中了他的眼睛。小鹿忍着疼痛跑开了,但是他的一只眼睛却瞎了。大森林里危机重重,只剩下一只眼睛,根本无法防备周围来自四面八方的危险。于是,小鹿决定搬到海边去。

他想:“大海上应该不会有什么危险吧?”。。。
