Aesop’s Fables – Das Kamel und der Löwe
Once upon a time, a young Lion was made king of the forest. The old lion had retired. There was great celebration in the forest for this. All the animals were performing for the lion.Translate
Es war einmal ein junger Löwe, der zum König des Waldes ernannt wurde. Der alte Löwe hatte sich zurückgezogen. Dafür gab es im Wald ein großes Fest. Alle Tiere spielten für den Löwen.
The elephant made everyone laugh and play when he sprayed them with water.
The birds sang the softest of songs.
The monkey was asked to dance. He danced so well that all the animals clapped. Even the lion was very happy and showered the monkey with praise.Translate
Der Elefant brachte alle zum Lachen und Spielen, als er sie mit Wasser besprühte.
Die Vögel sangen die leisesten Lieder.
Der Affe wurde gebeten zu tanzen. Er tanzte so gut, dass alle Tiere klatschten. Sogar der Löwe war sehr glücklich und überschüttete den Affen mit Lob.
There was a camel which was very jealous on hearing this. He thought, “Anyone can dance. The Monkey is not special. I can dance better than him.”
He went to the center of the stage and pushed the monkey away and began to dance. He was not a good dancer. He had a huge hump and long feet. He was jumping around and looked very ugly.Translate
Es gab ein Kamel, das sehr eifersüchtig war, dies zu hören. Er dachte: „Jeder kann tanzen. Der Affe ist nichts Besonderes. Ich kann besser tanzen als er. “
Er ging in die Mitte der Bühne und schob den Affen weg und begann zu tanzen. Er war kein guter Tänzer. Er hatte einen riesigen Buckel und lange Füße. Er sprang herum und sah sehr hässlich aus.
His long neck was twisting around and his hump was huge. The animals very angry and had to move away from his feet.
He was so careless that he almost kicked the Lion. The Lion roared and chased away the Camel into the desert.Translate
Sein langer Hals drehte sich und sein Buckel war riesig. Die Tiere waren sehr wütend und mussten sich von seinen Füßen entfernen.
Er war so unvorsichtig, dass er den Löwen fast getreten hätte. Der Löwe brüllte und jagte das Kamel in die Wüste.
