下雨

星期天下午,我坐在窗前做作业。忽然天色暗了下来,刮起了一阵狂风,要下雨了。我赶忙关紧窗户,屋里顿时特别地闷热。

  一会儿,粗大的雨点落下来,打在玻璃窗上“啪啪”直响。我透过玻璃窗向外望去,天地间像挂着无比宽阔的珠帘。雨落在对面屋顶的瓦片上,溅起一朵朵水花,像一层薄烟笼罩在屋顶上。雨水顺着屋檐流下来,开始像断了线的珠子,渐渐地,连成了一条线。地上的水越来越多,汇合成一条小溪。

  真是一场及时雨呀!田里的玉米一定会咕咚咕咚喝个痛快。我仿佛看到雨水流进地里,流进果园里,流进人们的心窝里。

  云散了,雨住了,太阳照亮了大地。我推开窗户,一股泥土的芳香迎面扑来,空气像过滤过似的,格外清新。窗外的杨树、柳树,经过雨水的冲洗,舒枝展叶,绿得发亮,美丽极了。


It's Raining

On Sunday afternoon, I sat in front of the window doing homework. Suddenly the sky darkened, a strong wind started blowing, it was going to rain. I quickly closed the window, the room suddenly felt particularly hot.

For a while, large raindrops fell, hitting the glass window with "plop plop" sounds. I looked out through the glass window, between heaven and earth there seemed to be a wide, beaded curtain. The rain fell on the tiles of the neighboring roof, splashing the pools of water, like a layer of thin smoke enveloping the roof. The rain fell down the eaves and began to break down into beads and gradually they formed a thread. More and more water gathered on the ground, merging into a stream.

It was really a timely rain! The cornfield must have been gulping the water, drinking happily. I seemed to feel as if the rain ran into the ground, into the orchards and into people's hearts.

The clouds scattered, the rain stopped and the sun illuminated the earth. I pushed the window open, the fragrance of the earth wafted in the air, like it had gone through a filter, very clean and fresh. Outside the window, the poplar and the willow had been washed by the rain, with leaves spread wide open, they looked green and shiny and very beautiful.
