When the girl was alone again, she did not know what to do, and in her distress went to the window. 

当女孩又独自一人时,她不知道该做些什么,便苦恼走到窗户边


Then she saw three women coming towards her, the first of whom had a broad flat foot, the second had such a great underlip that it hung down over her chin, and the third had a broad thumb. They remained standing before the window, looked up, and asked the girl what was amiss with her? 

然后,她看见了三个女人向她走来:第一个女人的一只脚又宽又扁,第二个女人的下嘴唇垂在下巴上,第三女人的大拇指十分宽大。



She complained of her trouble, and then they offered her their help and said, "If thou wilt invite us to the wedding, not be ashamed of us, and wilt call us thine aunts, and likewise wilt place us at thy table, we will spin up the flax for thee, and that in a very short time." 

她向她们抱怨了她所遇到的困难,然后那三个女人就给予了她帮助,说道:“如果你邀请我们去婚礼,而不因为我们而羞愧,并且把我们称作你的姨妈,安排我们与你坐在同一张桌子,我们就帮你在很短的时间内,纺完所有的亚麻。”


"With all my heart," she replied, "do but come in and begin the work at once." Then she let in the three strange women, and cleared a place in the first room, where they seated themselves and began their spinning. 

“我当然乐意,”她回答道,“请你们现在就进来,开始工作吧。”然后,她让三个奇怪的女人进了屋,在第一个房间中整理出一块地方,女人们坐下来开始纺织。

The one drew the thread and trod the wheel, the other wetted the thread, the third twisted it, and struck the table with her finger, and as often as she struck it, a skein of thread fell to the ground that was spun in the finest manner possible. 


她们中的一个边穿针引线边踏转轮,另一个抿湿线头,还有一个搓线,并用手指叩击桌子,每叩一下,就有一束以能做到最好的方式纺织出的纱掉落到地上。


The girl concealed the three spinners from the Queen, and showed her whenever she came the great quantity of spun thread, until the latter could not praise her enough. 

女孩对女王隐藏了三个纺织女的存在,并在女王每一次来时展示给她大量纺好的纱,直到女王对此赞不绝口。


When the first room was empty she went to the second, and at last to the third, and that too was quickly cleared. Then the three women took leave and said to the girl, "Do not forget what thou hast promised us, -- it will make thy fortune.

当第一个房间空空如也时,她去了第二个房间,最后是第三个,剩下的房间里的亚麻也很快被织完。于是,那三个女人向女孩告别,并告诉她:“不要忘记你承诺过我们的事情,它关乎到你的命运。”
