How the Elephant got his trunk

Once upon a time, there was a sad elephant. He was dirty and stinky, because he could not reach to wash his back. All the other animals didn’t play with him because he was smelly.

英语民间故事 How the Elephant got his trunk

Elephant sat under a tree, where nobody could see him. He started to cry. His head was hanging down, crying big tears. He sat and cried for days. One day, when his tears had dried up, he went to itch his head and he felt a bump on his back. Then he noticed his nose had stretched because it had got wet with all the crying and it was now a long trunk which had hit him on his back.

He went to the river and got his trunk, put it in the water and sucked the water up. Then he sprayed his back with water.

All the other animals came over to him and said “you are so clean and smell so lovely. Do you want to play with us?”

The elephant was so happy and said “yes.”

象鼻从何而来?

从前,有一只悲伤的大象。他又脏又臭,因为他无法清洗到他的背。所有其他的动物也不跟他玩耍。

大象坐在没人能看见他的树下,开始哭了起来。他低着头,嚎啕大哭。就这样坐着哭了许多天。有一天哭干了眼泪以后,他去给脑袋挠痒痒,感觉到背上有一个包。然后他发现自己的鼻子变长了,因为他哭的时候鼻子一直是湿的,于是现在变成了一只能碰到背的长鼻子。

他来到河边,把鼻子放进水里并汲水。然后把水喷到背上。

所有其他动物都过来对他说:“你身上好干净啊,而且很好闻。你想跟我一起玩吗?”

大象非常高兴地说:“好啊!”
