Master 0sifu Folktale: The quail laughing at the roc

A the legend goes, during ancient times, in the expansive open county of North China, there was a kind of bird called “rocs”.

传说,古时候中国北方的原野上有一种鸟,它的名字叫“鹏”。

 

The roc was very huge, with its back like a big mountain, and its wings like a stretch of cloud which could cover the sky. When it spread its wings, it could break through a storm and soar at a height of 90000 li (1/2 kilometre) in the sky towards the sea in the south.

鹏长得很大,背脊像一座大山,翅膀像一片云,能把天空遮住。它张开翅膀能冲破风暴,在九万里高的天空中飞翔,一直飞向南方的大海。

 

A small bird called the quail bounced on the ground, free and happy. It looked up at the roc soaring in the sky and couldn’t help laughing.

有一只鷃雀的小鸟,在地上蹦蹦跳跳,自由自在,非常快活。它望着天空中展翅飞翔的大鹏,忍不住发笑,说:

 

“Hey, see how cocky you are! Look at me, one jump can take me over 10 Chi. How delightful! Every day I come and go amid these weeds and thickets and fly freely. Don’t I fly quite well too? But, where can you fly to anyway?”

 “咳,看你神气活现的!我呀,一蹦一跳,就有十几尺,多么痛快啊!我每天在这些杂草和树丛里,来来去去,自由飞翔,不也飞得挺好吗?可是,你又能飞到哪里去呢?”
