1.Johnny Reed was a little boy who never had seen a snowstorm till he was six years old. Before this, he had lived in a warm country, where the sun shines down on beautiful orange groves, and fields always sweet with flowers.
1.喬尼·瑞德是一個小男孩,直到六歲才看見暴風雪。在這之前,他一直住在一個天氣暖和的鄉村。在那里,陽光灑滿美麗的滿是橘子的山坡,田野里到處是芳香撲鼻的鮮花。

2.But now he had come to visit his grandmother, who lived where the snow falls in winter. Johnny was standing at the window when the snow came down.
2.但是,現在他來看望奶奶,奶奶住的地方冬天常常下雪。當雪花紛飛時,喬尼站在窗前定睛觀望。

3."O mamma!" he cried, joyfully, "do come quick, and see these little white birds flying down from heaven."
3.“噢,媽媽!”喬尼快樂地喊道,“快過來,白色的小鳥從天堂上飛下來了?!?/p>

4."They are not birds, Johnny," said mamma, smiling.
4.“它們不是鳥,喬尼?!眿寢屛⑿χf。

5."Then maybe the little angels are losing their feathers! Oh! do tell me what it is; is it sugar? Let me taste it," said Johnny. But when he tasted it, he gave a little jump—it was so cold.
5.“那么,它們就是小天使,正在掉羽毛!噢,快告訴我,是什么,是糖嗎?讓我嘗一嘗?!眴棠嵴f道。但當他品嘗雪花時,他不禁驚跳起來——太涼了。

6."That is only snow, Johnny," said his mother.
6.“那只是雪而已,喬尼?!眿寢屨f道。

7."What is snow, mother?"
7.“雪是什么,媽媽?”

8."The snowflakes, Johnny, are little drops of water that fall from the clouds. But the air through which they pass is so cold it freezes them, and they come down turned into snow."
8.“喬尼,雪就是從云彩上掉下的小水滴。不過,水滴從天上掉下來時,被寒冷的空氣凍住了,就變成了從天而降的雪花?!?/p>

9.As she said this, she brought out an old black hat from the closet. "See, Johnny! I have caught a snowflake on this hat. Look quick through this glass, and you will see how beautiful it is."
9.媽媽一邊說,一邊從櫥柜里拿出一頂黑色的舊帽子?!翱?,喬尼,我用帽子接住了一片雪花??焱高^這塊玻璃看一看,你就知道雪花有多么美了?!?/p>

10.Johnny looked through the glass. There lay the pure, feathery snowflake like a lovely little star.
10.喬尼透過玻璃看著雪花,那片純潔輕柔的雪花就像一顆可愛的小星星。

11."Twinkle, twinkle, little star!" he cried in delight. "Oh! please show me more snowflakes, mother."
11.“一閃一閃的小星星!”喬尼快樂地喊道?!班?,媽媽,再給我接些雪花吧!”

12.So his mother caught several more, and they were all beautiful.
12.于是,媽媽又接住了一些雪花,都是那么漂亮!

13.The next day Johnny had a fine play in the snow, and when he came in, he said, "I love snow; and I think snowballs are a great deal prettier than oranges."
13.第二天,喬尼在雪地里玩得非常開心,進屋后,他說:“我太喜歡雪了,雪球可比橘子好玩多了?!?/p>
