"Sounds like some kinda hippie," his mother had said when Brenda, who had been in seventh grade last year, de- scribed Miss Edmunds to her. 
“听上去像某种嬉皮士一样,”他妈妈在布兰达七年级时把埃德蒙小姐描述给她听的时候这样说过。


She probably was. Jess wouldn't argue that, but he saw her as a beautiful wild creature who had been caught for a moment in that dirty old cage of a schoolhouse, perhaps by mistake.
埃德蒙小姐可能是这样的。杰斯不会为这点争论,但在他眼里,她是一只暂时,可能被误困在学校这肮脏旧铁笼子里的美丽的自然产物。


 But he hoped, he prayed, she'd never get loose and fly away. 
但是他希望,他祈祷着,她永远都不会挣脱,然后飞向自由的天空。


He managed to endure the whole boring week of school for that one half hour on Friday afternoons when they'd sit on the worn-out rug on the floor of the teachers' room (there was no place else in the building for Miss Edmunds to spread out all her stuff) and sing songs like "My Beautiful Balloon," "This Land Is Your Land," "Free to Be You and Me," "Blowing in the Wind" and because Mr. Turner, the principal, insisted, "God Bless America." 
他设法忍受学校沉闷的一周,只为了周五下午半小时的音乐课,他们会坐在教师房间(这栋楼里没有别的地方可以让埃德蒙小姐放下她所以东西)地板上的破旧地毯上,唱着像“我美丽的气球,”“这是你的土地,”“自由是你和我”“在风中盛开”之类的歌,因为校长特纳先生一直强调要唱“上帝保佑美国。” 【这么长才算一句!!!!!】

      
But Jess knew what fakes they were. Sniffing "hippie" and "peacenik" even though the Vietnam War was over and it was supposed to be OK again to like peace, the kids would make fun of Miss Edmunds' lack of lipstick or the cut of her jeans.
但杰斯知道他们在演戏。孩子们像鄙视“嬉皮士”和“反战”一样——尽管越南战争已经结束了,爱好和平也应该是可以接受的——嘲笑着埃德蒙小姐,因为她不涂口红,而且穿着剪短了的牛仔裤。


She was, of course, the only female teacher anyone had ever seen in Lark Creek Elementary wearing pants. 
她自然是这所小学唯一能看得的穿着短裤的女教师。


In Washington and its fancy suburbs, even in Millsburg, that was OK, but Lark Creek was the backwash of fashion. 
在华盛顿和它的周边地区,甚至在米勒斯堡,这种行为应该是可以接受的,但是拉克.克里克小学是潮流时尚的边缘。


It took them a long time to accept there what everyone could see by their TV's was OK anywhere else.
这使得人们要花很长时间才能接受电视上看到的事物出现在他们眼前

So the students of Lark Creek Elementary sat at their desks all Friday, their hearts thumping with anticipation as they listened to the joyful pandemonium pouring out from the teachers' room, spent their allotted half hours with Miss Edmunds under the spell of her wild beauty and in the snare of her enthusiasms, and then went out and pretended that they couldn't be suckered by some hippie in tight jeans with make- up all over her eyes but none on her mouth. 
因此每个星期五,拉克克里克小学的学生都会坐在他们桌前,听着从教室办公室里传出的令人神往的孩子们的喧闹声,他们会享受和埃德蒙小姐在一起的每一个规定的半小时,被她咒语般的野性之美所迷惑,被她的热情套住。然后走出办公室,并且假装他们不会被一个穿着紧身牛仔裤,化了眼妆却不化嘴唇的嬉皮士所欺骗。【啊啊啊我讨厌大长句】

                   
Jess just kept his mouth shut. It wouldn't help to try to defend Miss Edmunds against their unjust and hypocritical attacks.
杰斯从来都是闭着嘴。帮着埃德蒙小姐对抗他们不公正和虚伪的攻击一点用都没有。


Besides, she was beyond such stupid behavior. It couldn't touch her. 
更何况她的言行已超越了那些愚蠢的行为。它们无法接近她。


But whenever possible, he stole a few minutes on Friday just to stand close to her and hear her voice, soft and smooth as suede, assuring him that he was a "neat kid." 
但只要有可能,他总是在周五下课后多呆几分钟,只是想靠近她,然后听听她柔和的像麂皮一样的声音,让他确信他是一个“纯洁的孩子。”


We're alike, Jess would tell himself, me and Miss Edmunds. Beautiful Julia. 
我们是一类人,我和埃德蒙小姐,杰斯会这样告诉自己。美丽的茱莉亚。


The syllables rolled through his head like a ripple of guitar chords. We don't belong at Lark Creek, Julia and me.
这些音节像吉他和弦一样穿过他的脑海。茱莉亚和我,我们不属于拉克.克拉克小学。
