Swallows may have gone, but there is a time of return; willow trees may have died back, but there is a time of regreening; peach blossoms may have fallen, but they will bloom again. Now, you the wise, tell me, why should our days leave us, never to return? - If they had been stolen by someone, who could it be? Where could he hide them? If they had made the escape themselves, then where could they stay at the moment?

With b cry of joy ,I was born into the world. rolled down my mother's cheeks .She smiled,and kissed me again and again, so tenderly and so lovingly.
Through my mother's love ,I grew up quickly.When I began learning to walk ,I fell constantly.Whenever I did so ,it was my mother who picked me up and encouraged me to try again.When I had difficulty learning to speak for the first time in my life ,it was also my mother who helped me so patiently.
However this was not enough.More importantly,she also gave me moral guidance.So many fairy tales,which she had read to me ,like "Cinderella,""Alice in the Wonderland," and "Sleeping Beauty," made me realize at an early age ,what was right and what was wrong, and how I should and should not behave.
I wish my mother and all the mothers in the whole world happiness and health throughout their entire lives.

CHANG'E FLIES TO THE MOON
Houyi (see further on the story Houyi She Ri), seeking perpetual youth, obtained the elixir of immortality from Queen Mother of the West who lived in the Kunlun Mountains. Returning to his palace, he confided the good news to his wife Chang'e, a lady graceful of carriage and unparalleled of beauty, very much loved by her husband.
One day, when Houyi was out, Chang'e secretly swallowed the potion in the hope that she would become immortal. The result was quite unexpected: she felt herself becoming light, so light that she flew up in spite of herself, drifting and floating in the air, until she reached the palace of the moon.
She is regarded by later generations as the goddess of the moon.
This beautiful story has always been liked by the Chinese and provides a favourite allusion for poets and writers.
Chairman Mao Zedong's poem in memory of his martyred wife Yang Kaihui has these well - known lines:
The lonely moon goddess spreads her ample sleeves
To dance for these loyal souls in infinite space.Here, in the Chinese original, the name Chang'e is used instead of "moon goddess".
The figure of Chang'e, a beauty dressed in the elegant garments of a bygone age floating towards the moon, naturally supplies
unending inspiration for painters and sculptors.
