The robbers stole thee from me, and left thee to die, she murmured, but I recognized thee when I saw thee, and the signs also have I recognized, the cloak of golden tissue and the amber-chain. Therefore I pray thee come with me, for over the whole world have I wandered in search of thee. Come with me, my son, for I have need of thy love.But the Star-Child stirred not from his place, but shut the doors of his heart against her, nor was there any sound heard save the sound of the woman weeping for pain.And at last he spoke2 to her, and his voice was hard and bitter. If in very truth thou art my mother, he said, it had been better hadst thou stayed away, and not come here to bring me to shame, seeing that I thought I was the child of some Star and not a beggars child, as thou tellest me that I am. Therefore get thee hence, and let me see thee no more.Alas3! my son, she cried, wilt4 thou not kiss me before I go? For I have suffered much to find thee.Nay, said the Star-Child, but thou art too foul5(犯规的,邪恶的) to look at and rather would I kiss the adder6 or the toad7 than thee.So the woman rose up, and went away into the forest weeping bitterly, and when the Star-Child saw that she had gone, he was glad, and ran back to his playmates that he might play with them.But when they beheld8(见到,观察) him coming, they mocked him and said, Why, thou art as foul as the toad, and as loathsome9(令人憎恶的) as the adder. Get thee hence, for we will not suffer thee to play with us, and they drave him out of the garden.And the Star-Child frowned and said to himself, What is this that they say to me? I will go to the well of water and look into it, and it shall tell me of my beauty.So he went to the well of water and looked into it, and lo! his face was as the face of a toad(蟾蜍) , and his body was scaled like an adder. And he flung himself down on the grass and wept, and said to himself, Surely this has come upon me by reason of my sin. For I have denied my mother, and driven her away, and been proud, and cruel to her. Wherefore I will go and seek her through the whole world, nor will I rest till I have found her.And there came to him the little daughter of the Woodcutter, and she put her hand upon his shoulder and said, What doth it matter if thou hast lost thy comeliness10? Stay with us, and I will not mock at thee.And he said to her, Nay, but I have been cruel to my mother, and as a punishment has this evil been sent to me. Wherefore I must go hence, and wander through the world till I find her, and she give me her forgiveness.So he ran away into the forest and called out to his mother to come to him, but there was no answer. All day long he called to her, and when the sun set he lay down to sleep on a bed of leaves, and the birds and the animals fled from him, as they remembered his cruelty, and he was alone save for the toad that watched him, and the slow adder that crawled past.And in the morning he rose up, and plucked(摘,拔) some bitter berries from the trees and ate them, and took his way through the great wood, weeping sorely. And of everything that he met he made enquiry if perchance(偶然,可能) they had seen his mother.He said to the Mole11, Thou canst go beneath the earth. Tell me, is my mother there? And the Mole answered, Thou hast blinded mine eyes. How should I know?He said to the Linnet, Thou canst fly over the tops of the tall trees, and canst see the whole world. Tell me, canst thou see my mother?And the Linnet answered, Thou hast clipt my wings for thy pleasure. How should I fly?And to the little Squirrel who lived in the fir-tree, and was lonely, he said, Where is my mother?And the Squirrel answered, Thou hast slain12 mine. Dost thou seek to slay13 thine also?And the Star-Child wept and bowed his head, and prayed forgiveness of Gods things, and went on through the forest, seeking for the beggar-woman. And on the third day he came to the other side of the forest and went down into the plain.And when he passed through the villages the children mocked him, and threw stones at him, and the carlots would not suffer him even to sleep in the byres lest he might bring mildew14(霉病) on the stored corn, so foul was he to look at, and their hired men drave him away, and there was none who had pity on him. Nor could he hear anywhere of the beggar-woman who was his mother, though for the space of three years he wandered over the world, and often seemed to see her on the road in front of him, and would call to her, and run after her till the sharp flints made his feet to bleed. But overtake her he could not, and those who dwelt by the way did ever deny that they had seen her, or any like to her, and they made sport of his sorrow.点击收听单词发音  1nay   adv.不;n.反对票,投反对票者参考例句:He was grateful for and proud of his sons remarkable,nay,unique performance.他为儿子出色的,不,应该是独一无二的表演心怀感激和骄傲。Long essays,nay,whole books have been written on this.许多长篇大论的文章,不,应该说是整部整部的书都是关于这件事的。2spoke   n.(车轮的)辐条;轮辐;破坏某人的计划;阻挠某人的行动 v.讲,谈(speak的过去式);说;演说;从某种观点来说参考例句:They sourced the spoke nuts from our company.他们的轮辐螺帽是从我们公司获得的。The spokes of a wheel are the bars that connect the outer ring to the centre.辐条是轮子上连接外圈与中心的条棒。3alas   int.唉(表示悲伤、忧愁、恐惧等)参考例句:Alas!The window is broken!哎呀!窗子破了!Alas,the truth is less romantic.然而,真理很少带有浪漫色彩。4wilt   v.(使)植物凋谢或枯萎;(指人)疲倦,衰弱参考例句:Golden roses do not wilt and will never need to be watered.金色的玫瑰不枯萎绝也不需要浇水。Several sleepless nights made him wilt.数个不眠之夜使他憔悴。5foul   adj.污秽的;邪恶的;v.弄脏;妨害;犯规;n.犯规参考例句:Take off those foul clothes and let me wash them.脱下那些脏衣服让我洗一洗。What a foul day it is!多么恶劣的天气!6adder   n.蝰蛇;小毒蛇参考例句:The adder is Britains only venomous snake.蝰蛇是英国唯一的一种毒蛇。An adder attacked my father.一条小毒蛇攻击了我父亲。7toad   n.蟾蜍,癞蛤蟆参考例句:Both the toad and frog are amphibian.蟾蜍和青蛙都是两栖动物。Many kinds of toad hibernate in winter.许多种蟾蜍在冬天都会冬眠。8beheld   v.看,注视( behold的过去式和过去分词 );瞧;看呀;(叙述中用于引出某人意外的出现)哎哟参考例句:His eyes had never beheld such opulence. 他从未见过这样的财富。 来自《简明英汉词典》The soul beheld its features in the mirror of the passing moment. 灵魂在逝去的瞬间的镜子中看到了自己的模样。 来自英汉文学 – 红字9loathsome   adj.讨厌的,令人厌恶的参考例句:The witch hid her loathsome face with her hands.巫婆用手掩住她那张令人恶心的脸。Some people think that snakes are loathsome creatures.有些人觉得蛇是令人憎恶的动物。10comeliness   n. 清秀, 美丽, 合宜参考例句:Your comeliness is law with Mr. Wildeve. 你的美貌,对于韦狄先生,就是律令。Her comeliness overwhelmed him. 她的清秀美丽使他倾倒。11mole   n.胎块;痣;克分子参考例句:She had a tiny mole on her cheek.她的面颊上有一颗小黑痣。The young girl felt very self- conscious about the large mole on her chin.那位年轻姑娘对自己下巴上的一颗大痣感到很不自在。12slain   杀死,宰杀,杀戮( slay的过去分词 ); (slay的过去分词)参考例句:The soldiers slain in the battle were burried that night. 在那天夜晚埋葬了在战斗中牺牲了的战士。His boy was dead, slain by the hand of the false Amulius. 他的儿子被奸诈的阿缪利乌斯杀死了。13slay   v.杀死,宰杀,杀戮参考例句:He intended to slay his fathers murderer.他意图杀死杀父仇人。She has ordered me to slay you.她命令我把你杀了。14mildew   n.发霉;v.(使)发霉参考例句:The interior was dark and smelled of mildew.里面光线很暗,霉味扑鼻。Mildew may form in this weather.这种天气有可能发霉。上一篇:The Star-Child 3下一篇:The Star-Child 5google_ad_client = “ca-pub-0119746079916199”;google_ad_slot = “5309864491”;google_ad_width = 728;google_ad_height = 90;TAG标签:placeforestvoice发表评论请自觉遵守互联网相关的政策法规,严禁发布色情、暴力、反动的言论。评价:中立好评差评表情:验证码:匿名?发表评论最新评论进入详细评论页function LoadCommets(page)
