The rabbit's bride

兔子新娘


There was once a woman who lived with her daughter in a beautiful cabbage-garden; and there came a rabbit and ate up all the cabbages. At last said the woman to her daughter, "Go into the garden, and drive out the rabbit." - "Shoo! shoo!" said the maiden; "don't eat up all our cabbages, little rabbit!" - "Come, maiden," said the rabbit, "sit on my tail and go with me to my rabbit-hutch." But the maiden would not. Another day, back came the rabbit, and ate away at the cabbages, until the woman said to her daughter, "Go into the garden, and drive away the rabbit." - "Shoo! shoo!" said the maiden; "don't eat up all our cabbages, little rabbit!" - "Come, maiden," said the rabbit, "sit on my tail and go with me to my rabbit-hutch." But the maiden would not. Again, a third time back came the rabbit, and ate away at the cabbages, until the woman said to her daughter, "Go into the garden, and drive away the rabbit." - "Shoo! shoo!" said the maiden; "don't eat up all our cabbages, little rabbit!" - "Come, maiden," said the rabbit, "sit on my tail and go with me to my rabbit-hutch." And then the girl seated herself on the rabbit's tail, and the rabbit took her to his hutch. "Now," said he, "set to work and cook some bran and cabbage; I am going to bid the wedding guests." And soon they were all collected. Would you like to know who they were? Well, I can only tell you what was told to me; all the hares came, and the crow who was to be the parson to marry them, and the fox for the clerk, and the altar was under the rainbow.

But the maiden was sad, because she was so lonely. "Get up! get up!" said the rabbit, "the wedding folk are all merry." But the bride wept and said nothing, and the rabbit went away, but very soon came back again. "Get up! get up!" said he, "the wedding folk are waiting." But the bride said nothing, and the rabbit went away. Then she made a figure of straw, and dressed it in her own clothes, and gave it a red mouth, and set it to watch the kettle of bran, and then she went home to her mother. Back again came the rabbit, saying, "Get up! get up!" and he went up and hit the straw figure on the head, so that it tumbled down.

And the rabbit thought that he had killed his bride, and he went away and was very sad.
从前有个妇人,她带着女儿住在一座漂亮的花园里,院子里种了许多卷心菜。 冬天,有只兔子来到院子里偷吃卷心菜,妈妈对女儿说:"去把那兔子赶走。"小姑娘就出来对兔子说:"喂!兔子,你快把我们家的卷心菜吃光了。"兔子对小姑娘说:"小姑娘,来坐到我尾巴上来吧,我带你上我家去。"
小姑娘不肯。
第二天,兔子又来吃卷心菜了。 妈妈又对女儿说:"到院子里去把那只兔子赶走。"小姑娘就出来对兔子说:"喂!兔子,你快把我们家的卷心菜吃光了。"兔子对小姑娘说:"小姑娘,来坐到我尾巴上来吧,我带你上我家去。"小姑娘还是拒绝了。
第三天,兔子又来了,坐在卷心菜上面。 妈妈对女儿说:"去把那兔子赶走。"小姑娘就出来对兔子说:"喂!兔子,你快把我们家的卷心菜吃光了。"兔子对小姑娘说:"小姑娘,来坐到我尾巴上来吧 ,我带你上我家去。 "小姑娘坐到兔子尾巴上,被带到了很远的兔子家。它对姑娘说:"现在动手烧饭吧,用青菜和小米,我去请来参加婚礼的客人。 "接着,所有的客人都到了(谁是客人?我把别人告诉我的说给你听吧:全是兔子!奶牛是牧师,为新郎新娘主持婚礼;狐狸是司仪,祭坛在彩虹下面。)
姑娘十分难过,因为只有她是人。 小兔子走来说:"开门开门快开门,客人们都很有兴趣。"被当成新娘的姑娘一言不发地抽泣起来,兔子走了出去。 它再回来时又说:"开饭开饭快开饭,客人们肚子都很饿了。"新娘还是一声不吭,顾自流泪,兔子又走了。 它第三次回来时对小姑娘说:"揭开锅盖快揭开,客人已经不耐烦。"新娘沉默着,兔子又出去了。 于是姑娘将自己的衣服套在一个稻草人身上,给它一把勺子装成搅拌锅里煮的东西的样子,然后把它摆在锅边,自己回家找妈妈去了。 小兔子又回来喊:"快开饭,快开饭!"然后站起来,对着新娘就是一拳,结果把稻草人的帽子给打掉了。
小兔子发现这不是它要的新娘,十分难过地离开了那里。
