【 来源:不详 作者:未知 编录:mt56  加入收藏  点击数(0) 已有0人评论


  During a visit to my mother' s home, I joined her in the living room to talk, read and watch television. Facing a bookcase that has been in the same spot since I was a child, I let my eyes wander over the familiar volumes, many of which now have faded covers and frayed bindings.

  "These books look so sad," I remarked. "Maybe we should go through them and toss some."

  My mother stood up and went over to the shelves. She took down several books, turned a few pages and replaced them. Then she returned to her chair and quietly said, 'They are just fine. The stories are still in them.

97.故事还在里面

  我回娘家期间,我和母亲一起在起居室里交谈、读书、看电视。对面是一个从我孩童时代就原地未动的书架。我的眼睛看着那些熟悉的卷册,其中许多都已封面褪色、书脊磨破了。

  “这些书看起来真惨,”我说,“或许我们应该翻检一下,扔掉一些。”

  母亲站起来,走到书架处。她拿下几本书,翻了几页又重新放了回去。然后她坐回到椅子上,平静地说:“很好,故事还都在里面。”

① wander; over ② faded; frayed ③ through ④ over ⑤ down
