桃花心木

(2006-08-13 20:38:51)
                 桃花心木
                    (海豚译)
    在我农村老家的前面,有一块未耕种的土地被租给他人栽种桃花心木。树苗栽种之后,种植人每隔几天就给他们浇水、灌溉。但是,他并不是定期去树园,有时每隔3天,有时5天,有时甚至12天才去一次。然而,他浇水的数量也时不时的改变着,有时多,有时少。这样以来,就会有一些枯死的树苗。因此,每当他来树园,总将带一些小树苗代替枯死的桃花心木。
    起初,我认为他是个懒人。这种人由于太过于随便而不能全身心的花费时间照顾他的幼苗。然而,像他那样的人又是如何确切地知道有多少株苦死的树苗的?他说,“这些树要用100多年的时间繁衍他们稳定的根基。他们需要自己探寻在所生长的环境中,水资源在土囊中究竟有多少。正如不可估测的降水量一样,我所浇的水对于雨水仅是一种假象,微不足道。如果一株树苗不能适应它自身的环境并找到使自己生长的水分,自然地,它只有枯死。可是,一旦他找到了可供应的水分,使自己的根在地下繁衍,无疑的,树苗将会长成一棵苍天大树。
    他所说的这番话令人深思啊!他继续解释,“如果我每天去树园给他们定量的水分,不久,树苗便会习惯于、依赖于如此。他们的根也仍将只停留在土地的表层。因为,对于他们来说,根本没必要深入地下寻找水分。一旦我忽然停止浇水,这些树苗将会大量枯死。即使幸免存活下来的树苗,也将会很容易地被风暴所损坏。
     我深深的被他的话语所感动。我想对于人生不也同样如此吗?当我们遇上某些茫然时,我们必须依靠自己,自己做主。只有这样,我们才将像桃花心木那样,吸收养分转变成大量的能量,从而帮助我们成长。

                Mahogany
   In front of my old country hourse,a piece of uncultivated land was rented to others to plant mahopany trees。After the tree saplings were planted,the planter would come over to water them once every few days.His visits were on an irregular basis,an interval of three,sometimes five,or even a dozen of days.The amount of water he used for watering was also varied  from time to time ,sometimes more,sometimes less.Some mahogany saplings would then be found withered.Hence,whenever he came by,he would bring a few yong plants to replace the withering ones.
    At first,I took him for a lazy man,someone who's too casual to take to heart the time to attend to his seedlings.However,how could someone like that know exactly how mang plants were there withering?He said,“It takes a hundred years for trees to establish their firm footing.They need to explore water sources deep down in the soil for themselves.My watering is a simulation for raining as unpredictable as rainfalls.If a sapling can't adjust itself to the enviroment and find moisture for its own growth,naturally,it goes to wither.However,once it found water supply and settled its root deep in earth,no doubt the sapling would grow into a long-lasting tree.
    What he said was throught-provoking.He went on to explain,“if I came every day to give them a definite amount of water,the saplings would get used to it and rely on it.Their roots would remain skin-deep in the surface;there is no need for them to strike deep into the earth.If I happen to stop watering ,the saplings would wither badly.Even those that survived accidentaly would be easily broken in the storms.”
    I was moved by hid remarks.I think the same is true for us human beings.When we encounter uncertainties,we would have to rely on ourselves and act on our own.In that way,we would be like the mahogany trees,turning the little amount of nutrient we have absorbed into powerful energy to help us grow.
