Lesson26 The best art critics

我是个学艺术的学生,画了很多画。有很多的装成很懂现代艺术的样子,总是告诉你一幅画的“意思”是什么。当然,有很多画是什么“意思”也没有的。它们就是些好看的图案,我们喜爱它们就像我们喜欢漂亮的窗帘布一样。我觉得小孩子们往往比任何人都能欣赏现代绘画,他们观察到的东西更多。我的妹妹只有7岁,但她总能说出我的画是好还是坏。咋天她到我的房里来了。

“你在干什么?”她问。

“我正把这幅画挂到墙上去。”我回答,“这是幅新画,你喜欢吗?”

她用挑剔的眼光看了一会。“还可以吧。”她说,“不过,是不是挂倒了?”

我再次看了看画。她说对了!是挂倒了!

I am an art student and I paint a lot pictures. Many people pretend that they understand modern art. They always tell you what a picture is 'about'. Of course, many pictures are not 'about' anything. They are just pretty patterns. We like them in the same way that we like pretty curtain material. I think that young children often appreciate modern pictures better than anyone else. They noticed more. My sister is only seven, but she always tells me whether my pictures are good or not. She came into my room yesterday.

‘What are you doing?’ she asked.

‘I'm hanging this picture on the wall.’ I answered. ‘It's a new one. Do you like it?’

She looked at it critically for a moment. ‘It's all right’ she said, ‘but, isn't it upside down?’

I looked at the picture again. She was right! It was!

 

Lesson27 A wet night

傍晚时分,孩子们在田野是中央搭起了帐篷。这件事刚做完,他们就在篝火上烧起了饭。他们全都饿了,饭菜散发出阵阵香味。他们美美地吃了一顿饭后,就围在营火旁讲起了故事,唱起了歌。但过了一阵子,天下起雨来,于是他们扑灭了篝火,钻时了帐篷。睡袋既暖和又舒服,所以,他们都睡得很香。午夜前后,有两个孩子醒了,大声叫了起来。原来帐篷里到处都是水!他们全都跳出了睡袋,跑到外面。雨下得很大,他们发现地上已经形成了一条小溪。那小溪弯弯曲曲穿过田野,然后正好从他们的帐篷底下流过去!

Late in the afternoon, the boys put up their tent in the middle of a field. As soon as this was done, they cooked a meal oven an open fire. They were all hungry and the food smelled good. After a wonderful meal, they told stories and sang songs by the campfire. But some time later it began to rain. The boys felt tired so they put out the fire and crept into their tent. Their sleeping bags were warm and comfortable, so they all slept soundly. In the middle of the night, two boys woke up and began shouting. The tent was full of water. The all leapt out of their sleeping bags and hurried outside. It was raining heavily and they found that a stream had formed in the field. The stream wound its way across the field and then flowed right under their tent!

 

Lesson28 No parking!

贾斯珀. 怀特是少有的相信古代神话的人之一。他刚在城里买下一所新房子,但自从搬进去后,就和汽车及车主们发生了磨擦。当他夜里回到家时,总是发现有人把车停在他家大门外。为此,他甚至一次也没能把自己的车开进车库。贾斯柏曾把几块“禁止停车”的牌子挂在大门外,便没有任何效果。现在他把一个丑陋的石雕头像放在大门边上,这是我见过的最丑陋的头像之一。我问他那是什么?他告诉我那是蛇发女怪美杜莎。贾斯柏希望她把汽车和车主们都变成石头。但到目前为止还没有一个人变成石头呢?

Jasper White is one of those rare people who believes in ancient myths. He has just bought a new house in the city, but ever since he moved in, he has had trouble with cars and their owners. When he returns home at night, he always finds that someone has parked a car outside his gate. Because of this, he has not been able to get his own car into his garage even once. Jasper has put ‘No Parking!’ signs outside the gate, but these have not had any effect. Now he has put an ugly stone head over the gate. It is one of the ugliest faces I have ever seen. I asked him what it was and he told me that it was Medusa, the Gorgon. Jasper hopes that she will turn the cars and their owners to stone. But none of them has been turned to stone yet!

 

Lesson29 Taxi!

本.弗西特机长买了一辆不同寻常的出租汽车,并开始一项新的业务。这辆“出租汽车”是一架小型瑞士飞机,叫“皮勒特斯.波特”号。这架奇妙的飞机可以载7名乘客.然而,最令人惊奇的是它能够在任何地方降落:雪地上,水面上,甚至刚耕过的田里。弗西特机长的第一名乘客是位医生,他从伯明翰飞往威尔士山区的一个偏僻的村庄。从那时开始,弗西特机长已经载送乘客到过许多不寻常的地方。一次,他把飞机降落在一栋公寓楼的屋顶上;还有一次,降落在了一个废弃的停车场上。弗西特机长刚刚拒绝了一位商人的奇怪要求。这个人想要飞往大西洋的一个孤岛—罗卡尔岛,弗西特机长之所以不送他去,是因为那段飞行太危险了。

Captain Ben Fawcett has bought an unusual taxi and has begun a new service. The 'Taxi' is a small Swiss aeroplane called a 'Pilatus Porter'. This wonderful plane can carry seven passengers. The most surprising thing about it, however, is that it can land on anywhere: on snow, water, or even on a ploughed field. Captain Fawcett's first passenger was a doctor who flew from Birmingham to a lonely village in the Welsh mountains. Since then, Captain Fawcett has flown passengers to many unusual places. Once he landed on the roof of a block of flats and on another occasion, he landed in a deserted car park. Captain Fawcett has just refused a strange request from a business man. He wanted to fly to Rockall, a lonely island in the Atlantic Ocean, but Captain Fawcett did not take him because the trip was too dangerous.

 

Lesson30 Football or polo?

威尔河是横穿过我家附近公园的一条小河。我喜欢在天气晴朗的下午到河边坐坐。上星期日天气很暖和。于是我和往常一样,又去河边坐着。河岸上有些孩子正在玩耍,河面上有些人正在划船。突然,一个孩子狠狠地踢了一脚球,球便向着一只划过来的小船飞去。岸上的一些人对小船上的人高喊,但他没有听见。球重重地打在他身上,便他差点落入水中。我转头去看那些孩子,但一个也看不见,全都跑了!当那个人明白了发生的事情时,笑了起来。他大声叫着那些孩子,把球扔回到岸上。

The Wayle is a small river that cuts across the park near my home. I like sitting by the Wayle on fine afternoons. It was warm last Sunday, so I went and sat on the river bank as usual. Some children were playing games on the bank and there were some people rowing on the river. Suddenly, one of the children kicked a ball very hard and it went towards a passing boat. Some people on the bank called out to the man in the boat, but he did not hear them. The ball struck him so hard that he nearly fell into the water. I turned to look at the children, but there weren't any in sight, they had all run away! The man laughed when he realized what had happened. He called out to the children and threw the ball back to the bank.
