The First Snow Storm

哈利的初雪

by anonymous

翻译:寒星

文字难度:2

On a warm sunny island, little Harry was born. Flowers bloomed all the year round. The sun shone most of the time.

When Harry was six years old, his family moved to New York.

It seemed very 1)odd to the little boy to live in a place where there were so many people, and such great houses. After a while, the weather grew cold and he had to wear thick clothing.

The sky was cloudy one afternoon, and Harry was standing by the window watching the street. Suddenly, the air grew thick. Something white and 2)feathery fell slowly down and rested on the window 3)ledge. Then it disappeared.

Harry opened the window gently. He was surprised to find it so cold when he touched it. He took some in his hand, but soon it was only a drop of water.

Harry was 4)puzzled to find a name for the beautiful white thing, so he ran to his mamma.

She told him it was snow, and because it was so warm on the island, they had never seen any.

The next morning, he saw some children playing in it. But before noon, the snow had all melted away.

When the second snow storm came, Harry’s papa brought home a 5)sleigh and drew his little boy up and down the street.

Harry started going out and made many friends. But he never forgot his surprise when he saw the first snow storm.

小哈利出生在一个阳光灿烂的温暖小岛上。这里繁花盛开,一年里的大部分时间都是晴天。

六岁那年,哈利和家人移居到了纽约。

对于这个小男孩来说,生活在这样一个人口密集、到处都是大房子的地方,感觉非常奇怪。不久之后,天气变冷了,他得穿上厚厚的衣服。

一天下午,天空阴沉沉的,哈利正站在窗户边望着街道。空气忽然沉闷起来。一些羽毛般轻柔的白色东西慢慢地飘了下来,落在窗台上,接着就消失了。

哈利轻轻地推开窗户。他惊奇地发现这东西摸起来好冷。他抓了一些放在掌心上,可是那东西不一会儿就变成了一滴水。

哈利说不出这种美丽的白色物体叫什么名字,他困惑极了,于是跑去妈妈那儿。

妈妈告诉他,这是雪。因为小岛上气候温暖,他们从未见过雪。

第二天早晨,哈利看见几个孩子正在雪地里玩耍。可惜还不到中午,雪就全部融化了。

在第二场雪来临之际,哈利的爸爸带了一台雪橇回家,还拉着小哈利在街上滑上滑下。

哈利开始走出屋子,也交了许多朋友。但他一直都没有忘记自己看见初雪时有多么惊喜。

名师考点小结

1. most of引导的短语作主语时,其谓语动词的单复数形式取决于most of后面的名词或代词。若其后的名词或代词是复数,则谓语动词用复数;其后的名词或代词是单数或不可数,则谓语动词用单数。

Most of them want to study abroad. 他们大多数人都想出国留学。

Most of her money is spent on clothing. 她大部分的钱都花在了衣服上。

 

2. seem表“似乎,看似,好像”,没有被动语态,也不用于进行时,其用法归纳如下:

1) 后接动词不定式。

I seem to have caught a cold. 我好像已经感冒了。

2) 后接形容词作表语,有时相当于省略了“to be”。

She always seems (to be) sad. 她看上去总是很忧伤。

3) seem可与形式主语“it”连用,后面接that从句。

 It seems that it’s going to rain. 天好像要下雨了。
