The Seasons of the Year. My Favourite Season.
It's a universal truth that
every season is beautiful in its own way. Isn't it wonderful to tramp down the
country lanes on a frosty winter day. Everything is white with snow and it
crunches under your feet. The rime sparkles on the branches and the icicles
like precious diamonds hang from the roofs of the houses.
It's a merry time for both
children and grownups. They can go skating and skiing, sledging and having a
fight with snowballs or making a snowman. I suppose, it is very pleasant while
the frost lasts, an unpleasant time comes when the thaw begins.
Cars and buses go along
streets splashing the mud an slush on the passers-by. Everyone is grumbling and
scolding the weather. But soon a warm wind blows up heavy grey clouds and the
sun shines brightly in the cloudless azure sky. In a few months summer will
Summer is the most suitable
season for holidays and vacations. People enjoy bright summer days if they are
in the country or at the seaside. They go bathing and swimming, and fishing and
boating. But it's unbearable to stay in town on such hot and glaring days.
Everybody droops and shambles and tries to hide in the shade.
Then after a good rest autumn
and harvest time comes. The corn has turned golden and the farmer will reap it
and put it in his barn. The air is fresh and full of the autumn fragrance of
ripe apples, plums and peaches and of course, coloured asters, chrysanthemums.
But the weather is so
changeable in autumn, people have to wear raincoats and umbrellas if they don't
want to get wet through. The dead leaves cover the ground like a thick motley
carpet, the roads are slippery and wet, there are lots of puddles in the streets
and again everyone is looking forward to frosty winter days and much snow
It's rather difficult to say
what season is the best one, however dull and nasty or charming and marvellous
the weather may be.
As to me, I always look
forward to summer. I am never tired of its long sunny days, warm rains with
thunderstorms and hail, the buzz of mosquitoes and midges. I like to spend my
summer holidays at the seaside.
In my childhood I used to
enjoy playing on the beach, making castles and forts in the sands. When one
becomes older one begins to notice the murmur of the sea and it's so beautiful
to look at the moon's way on the water in the darkness. The air is fresh and
it's easy to breathe.
I like to lie in the sun
getting as brown, paddle in the water or get splashed by the waves. But it's
not every year that you can go to the seaside. Sometimes I spend my holidays in
the country. Most of my time I spend in the woods gathering strawberries and
flowers or at the river bathing and swimming in it.
Very often, I help my granny
in the vegetable garden weeding it or gathering tomatoes, cucumbers or radish.
I like to walk in the rain or just sit indoors watching the raindrops falling
down from the green leaves and blades of the grass onto the ground.
When summer is over, I always
feel sorry, because it was too short and was too quick to pass.
