Gentle Elephant

An elephant was walking.

The elephant who was looking down at the foot 
while walking noticed that an ant was on the ground.

(I’m sorry if I stepped on the ant.)

The gentle elephant decided to change 
the position of his feet.

Then he noticed that a snail was there.
(I’m sorry if I stepped on the snail.)

The elephant changed his position further down.

But there was a rat there.
(I’m sorry if I stepped on the mouse.)

The elephant had to change 
the position of lowering his foot more.

Therefore, the elephant broke his body balance 
and fell as if it turned upside down.

With the ant, snail and rat on the ground underlaying.
 


【 やさしいゾウ 】

一頭のゾウが歩いていた。

歩きながら足もとを見下ろしたゾウは 
アリが地面にいるのに気づいた。

(アリを踏んだら、かわいそう)
やさしいゾウは足の下ろす位置を変えることにした。

すると、そこにカタツムリがいるのに気づいた。
(カタツムリを踏んだら、かわいそう)

ゾウはさらに足を下ろす位置を変えた。

ところが、そこにはネズミがいた。
(ネズミを踏んだら、かわいそう)

ゾウは足を下ろす位置をもっと変えなければならなかった。

そのため、ゾウはからだのバランスを崩し 
ひっくり返るように倒れてしまった。

地面にいたアリとカタツムリとネズミを下敷きにして。
