海伦凯勒自传《我的生活》:第47期

发表时间:2017-05-09内容来源:VOA英语学习网
Chapter X 第十章 Just before the Perkins Institution closed for the summer, it was arranged that my teacher and I should spend our vacation at Brewster, on Cape Cod, with our dear friend, Mrs. Hopkins. I was delighted, for my mind was full of the prospective joys and of the wonderful stories I had heard about the sea. 临近帕金斯学院放暑假时,我和老师打算去科德角的布鲁斯特度假,一起同行的还有我们亲密的朋友霍普金斯夫人。我很兴奋,因为我满脑子里想的都是快乐的旅程和关于大海的神奇故事。 My most vivid recollection of that summer is the ocean. I had always lived far inland and had never had so much as a whiff of salt air; but I had read in a big book called "Our World" a desCRIption of the ocean which filled me with wonder and an intense longing to touch the mighty sea and feel it roar. So my little heart leaped high with eager excitement when I knew that my wish was at last to be realized. 我对那个夏天的最生动的记忆就是海洋。我一直生活在内陆,从来没有如此近距离地呼吸过带咸味的空气。但是我曾读到过一本厚厚的,叫做《我们的世界》的书,书中对于海洋的描述令我产生了十分迫切的冲动,我渴望能触摸到雄浑的大海,领略到巨浪的咆哮。我知道我的愿望终于要实现了,我那颗小小的心脏激动得怦怦直跳。 No sooner had I been helped into my bathing-suit than I sprang out upon the warm sand and without thought of fear plunged into the cool water. I felt the great billows rock and sink. The buoyant motion of the water filled me with an exquisite, quivering joy. Suddenly my ecstasy gave place to terror; for my foot struck against a rock and the next instant there was a rush of water over my head. I thrust out my hands to grasp some support, I clutched at the water and at the seaweed which the waves tossed in my face. 来自:VOA英语网 文章地址: http://www.tingvoa.com/html/20170509/462344.html
