Little Nutbrown Hare, Who was going to bed, held on tight to Big Nutbrown Hare's very long ears.
He wanted to be sure that Big Nutbrown Hare was listening.
"Guess how much I love you," he said.
"Oh, I don't think I could guess that," said Big Nutbrown Hare.
"That much," said Little Nutbrown Hare, stretching out his arms as wide as they could go.
大兔子有一雙更長的手臂, 他張開一比, 說 :
小兔子想 : 嗯這真的很多。
Big Nutbrown Hare had even longer arms.
"But I love you this much," he said.
Hmm, that is a lot, thought Little Nutbrown Hare.
「我愛你, 像我舉的這麼高, 高得不能再高。」
"I love you as high as I can reach," said Little Nutbrown Hare.
「我愛你, 像我舉的這麼高, 高得不能再高。
"I love you as high as I can reach," said Big Nutbrown Hare.
That is very high, thought Little Nutbrown Hare.
I wish I had arms like that.
Then Little Nutbrown Hare had a good idea.
He tumbled upside down and reached p the tree trunk with his feet.
他說 : 「我愛你到我的腳趾頭這麼多。」
"I love you all the way up to my toes!" he said.
大兔子把小兔子拋起來, 飛得比他的頭還高, 說 :
"And I Love you all the way up to your toes," said Big Nutbrown Hare, swinging him up over his head.
小兔子笑起來了, 說 :
「我愛你, 像我跳的這麼高, 高得不能再高。」
"I love you as high as I can hop!" laughed Little Nutbrown Hare, bouncing up and down.
「可是, 我愛你, 像我跳的這麼高, 高得不能再高。」
"But I love you as high as I can hop," smiled Big Nutbrown Hare -- and he hopped so high that his ears touched the branches above.
That's good hopping, thought Little Nutbrown Hare.
I wish I could hop like that.
小兔子大叫 : 「我愛你, 一直到過了小路, 在遠遠的河那邊。」
"I love you all the way down the lane as far as the river," cried Little Nutbrown Hare.
大兔子說 : 「我愛你, 一直到過了小河, 越過山的那一邊。」
"I love you across the river and over the hills," said Big Nutbrown Hare.
That's very far, thought Little Nutbrown Hare.
He was almost too sleepy to think anymore.
Then he looked beyond the thorn bushes, out into the big dark night,
Nothing could be farther the the sky.
小兔子閉上了眼睛說 : 「我愛你, 從這裡一直到月亮」
「噢 ! 那麼遠, 」大兔子說, 「真的非常遠, 非常遠」
"I love you right up to the moon," he said, and closed his eyes.
"Oh, that's far," said Big Nutbrown Hare.
"That is very, very far."
Big Nutbrown Hare settled Little Nutbrown Hare into his bed of leaves.
He leaned over and kiss him good night.
小聲的微笑著說 : 「我愛你, 從這裡一直到月亮, 再 ----
Then he lay down close by and whispered with a smile, "I love you right up to the moon ----
