ADVENTURE AT SEA
(See Fables, by Arnold Lobel)

A lobster and a crab together set
out to sail one day.
A lobster drove into the wind and
enjoyed the splash and spray.
The crab worried about the boat
which had a definite crack.
The crab feared that the boat would
sink and what then? Alas!
Alack!

The lobster told his friend, the
crab, "We´re children of the
sea."
"The boat may sink. But what of
that? We can just then swim
free."

Two souls set out together one day
in the ship of life to sail.
One drove into the wind however it
might assail.
The other worried about gusty gales
and wether he ought to go back
And whether death would end it all,
and what then? Alas! Alack!
The first told to his friend, "We are
children of the great God who
made the storms.
Is there anywhere we could sink and
not be still found in His
loving, protecting arms?



AVENTURA EN EL MAR
(Ver Fábulas de Arnold Lobel)

Una Langosta y un cangrejo salieron
un día a navegar .
La langosta disfrutaba el viento
el chapoteo y chaparrón.
El cangrejo se procupaba
porque el bote tenia una grieta en formación.
El cangrejo procupado porque el
bote se hundiría y no sabia que hacer.

La langosta le dijo a su amigo el cangrejo,
"Nosotros somos hijos del
mar."
"El bote se puede hundir, pero, y
qué? Nosotros podremos libremente
nadar."

Dos almas decidieron un dia
navegar en el barco de la vida.
Una se lanzó al viento sin importar
que pudiera hallar.
La otra procupada por impetuosos vendavales
Y si era mejor regresar
Y si la muerte todo lo acabaría
Y no sabia que hacer.

El primero le dijo a su amigo, "Nosotros
somos hijos del gran Dios quien
hizo las tormentas.
Si en alguna parte nos hundimos
En sus amorosos y protectores brazos
no estaremos?

-Versión de Jorge Rey
