Have You Seen the Tree

你见过那棵树吗

My neighbor Mrs. Gargan first told me about it."Have you seen the tree?" she asked as I was sitting in the backyard enjoying the October?twilight.

关于那棵树,最初是我的邻居加根太太告诉我的。“你见过那棵树吗?”她问道,当时我正坐在后院欣赏十月的暮色。

"The one down at the corner," she explained. "It's a beautiful tree-all kinds of colors.Cars are stopping to look. You ought to see it."

“就是下去拐角处的那棵”她解释说,“漂亮极了—五颜六色的。好多车路过都停下来看,你该去看看。”

I told her I would, but I soon forgot about the tree. Three days later, I was?jogging down the street, my mind swimming with?petty?worries, when a?splash?of bright orange caught my eye. For an instant, I thought someone's house had caught fire. Then I remembered the tree.

我对她说我会去看的,可转眼就忘记了关于树的事。三天后,我顺着街道慢跑,脑子里充斥着恼人的小事,忽然,一片耀眼的橘红色映入眼帘,有一会儿,我还以为是谁家的房子着火了呢,但我马上想到了那棵树。

As I?approached it, I slowed to a walk. There was nothing remarkable about the shape of the tree. a medium-sized?maple. But Mrs. Gargan had been right about its colors.Like the?messy?whirl?of an artist's?palette, the tree?blazed a bright crimson on its lower branches, burned with vivid yellows and oranges in its center. and simmered to deep red at its top. Through these?fiery?colors cascaded thin?rivulets of pale-green leaves and?blotches of deep-green leaves, as yet untouched by autumn.

我慢慢走近它.就像朝圣者缓缓步向神殿,我发现靠近树梢的地方有几根光秃秃的枝丫,上面黑乎乎的小枝像鹰爪一般伸向天空。枯枝上落下的叶子一片猩红,像地毯似的铺在树干周围。

Edging closer-like a?pilgrim?approaching a?shrine-I noticed several bare branches near the top, their black?twigs?scratching the air like?claws.The leaves they had shed lay like a scarlet carpet around the trunk.

当我靠近树时,禁不住放慢了脚步。树的形状并没有什么非凡之处,是一棵中等大小的枫树。但加根太太说得不错,它的色彩确实奇特,像画家调色板中斑斓的颇料,令人眼花缭乱。树底部的枝丫好似一片鲜红的火海,树的中部燃烧着明快的黄色和橘色,顶部的树梢又爆发着深红色。在这火一样的色彩中,流淌着浅绿的叶子汇成的小溪,深绿的叶子斑驳点缀其间,似乎至今末曾受到过秋天的侵袭。
