A wolf went quite a distance and finally found a cottage. He made no noise while approaching the fold near the house (1). He stole  a lamb from the fold, and carried it with him away from the house. 一条狼走了很远的路程,终于发现一个茅屋。他走近茅屋附近的一个羊栏,没有弄出任何声响。他从羊栏里偷得一支羔羊,随身带着羊离开了茅屋。

 

When the wolf walked happily on the road to his lair, a lion met him. The lion seized the lamb, and took it from the wolf. 正当狼高兴地走在路上,准备回窝时,一头狮子碰到了他。狮子抓住羊羔,从狼那儿夺走了羔羊。

 

The wolf ran away from the lion and   stopped only at a safe distance. Then the wolf exclaimed: “You have un-righteously taken that which was mine from me.” 狼逃离狮子,到了安全地方才站住。然后,狼大声喊道:“你把我的东西从我这儿抢走,你太不公正!”

 

The lion jeeringly replied: “It was righteously yours, eh? The gift of a friend?” 狮子讥笑道:“哼,你的东西,就公正吗?是朋友送给你的礼物?”

 

There was no justice in a jungle. 丛林里没有什么公正可言。

 

Notes:

1.       He made no noise while approaching the fold near the house.

句中的while是并立连接词,后面接的是一个主句。这个主句的主语与前面的主句的主语相同,并带有to be动词,故可省主语和动词to be部分,如补充出省略部分,则是:He made no noise while he was approaching the fold near the house.

2.       The wolf ran away from the lion and   stopped only at a safe distance.

句中的短语at a safe distance作状语,修饰谓语动词stopped。注意, safe(安全的)修饰 distance (距离),当然不是说“距离安全了”,而是说“在这个距离内,狼安全了”。类似的说法还可举出:sleepless night (不眠之夜----是夜晚没有睡觉,还是说话的人没有睡觉?)/  busy airport(繁忙的机场----机场忙,还是工作人员在忙?
