爱思英语编者按:小朋友们,今天开始我们来一起学习中国成语寓言故事89:A Single Mesh View一孔之见,跟爸妈一起来看看吧!


Once upon a time, there was a bird-catcher who liked to cast a net to catch birds.

    古时候,有个捕鸟的人,喜欢张网捕鸟。

    One day, seeing that birds would fly past, he immediately cast his net and waited patiently.

    一天,他看见鸟儿将要从这里飞过,于是立刻布下了罗网,耐心地等待。

    After a while, a bird came as expected, and was caught by him at once.

    一会儿,鸟儿果然飞来了,一下子就被他捕获了。

    The bird-catcher drew in the net and found that the bird had been caught in one mesh. He thought that, such being the case, one mesh would be enough. Therefore, he especially made a net with only one mesh, cast it in the same place and waited in high spirits.

    捕鸟人收网一看,发现鸟被缚在一只网眼里。他想,原来只要一个网眼就行了。于是,他就专门制作了一张只有一个眼孔的网,再拿到原处张起网来,兴致勃勃地等待着。

    However, he never caught another bird thereafter.  

    然而,从此以后,他再也没有捕到过一只鸟。
