A Memorable Day

时间:2007-6-12栏目:大学英语作文

     One afternoon, it was drizzling. I was on my way home by train. There were only a few passengers in the carriage. When the train reached the station in front of a bridge, two impressive passengers got on, an old and a young. They looked like father and son. And they were both disabled. The old man was blind.The little boy of eight or nine years old had only one eye open,the other closed tightly. The little boy took pains to move with his father. As the train started rumbling again, the little boy's voice got around, "Grandpas, grandmas, uncles and aunts, my honor to meet you. I'm Xiao Ming. Now I will sing a song for you."
     Although the song was not very elegant, it sounded cordial and sweet. After several songs, as was expected, the boy began to "beg". Neither did he use a plate, nor did he extend his hands before you. He just said, "Uncles and aunts", then he would keep in silence. Everyone understood what he meant, but they pretended to know nothing. Some even turned their heads aside.
     When the boy got to the end of the carriage with empty hands, a middle aged woman screamed with annoyance, "What on hell happens? The beggars are everywhere!" Suddenly all eyes fixed on them. To our surprise, the little boy said slowly and seriously, "Aunt, I'm not a beggar. I live on singing."
     At that moment, my eyes misted. I was not aware of who started to applaud. Immediately, the carriage was filled with applause. As I was putting a coin on his hand, I believed that there was no beggar on earth.

睁着,另一个眼睛紧闭着,行动困难。然后,小男孩老练地开始卖唱乞讨。但乞讨的过程并不顺利,不但没有人给钱,还有一个妇女故意出言羞辱。出人意料的是,小男孩不卑不亢地回答,“我不是乞丐,我以卖唱为生。”不禁令所有在场的人为此而鼓掌,也令读者对这对父子在如此艰难的生活中仍然不忘保持做人的尊严而肃然起敬。
    文章在结构上层层推进,在情节上有起伏,直至最后的高潮,像一篇微型小说。不足之处是最
