One night, a little swallow(燕子) flew over the city. He was very tired and wanted to have a good 36 in the city. When he saw the Statue(雕塑) of the Happy Prince, he flew down and got ready to sleep 37 the foot of the Happy Prince.
Just as he was putting his head under his wing, some 38 fell on him. He thought it was raining. But when he looked 39, he found the sky was quite clear and bright that he could see lots of stars. Suddenly, he saw some tears were running down the Prince’s golden face.
“40 are you crying?” asked the swallow.
“In a little street, there’s a poor house. From one of the windows, I see a poor woman 41 at a table. She’s sewing(缝) clothes for 42women to wear to make money. In a bed in the corner of the room, her little boy is sick. He’s asking for oranges, but his mother has only water to give him, 43 he is crying. The boy is so thirsty andthe mother is so sad. Little swallow, will you please take the jewel(宝石) from the top of my sword (宝剑) to her?”
“It is very cold here and I am leaving for a warm place, but I will stay w ith you and do as you ask.”
The swallow took the bright red jewel from the Prince’s sword and flew away with it in his mouth. He flew into the woman’s room and 44 it beside the woman’s needle(针).
45 he flew back, he told the Prince what he had done. “It’s strange,” he added, “It’s so cold but I feel quite 46 now.”
“That’s 47 you have done a good thing,” said the Prince. The little swallow began to think about this, and then he fell asleep.

My hoof(蹄) was badly hurt. I couldn’t work. I stayed in a field. A week later, the lord and York came into the field. They watched me move. “That horse is useless,” the lord said. “We can’t keep him here. We must sell him.” A week later, York led me away. York’s friend bought me. I was very sad and so was Ginger. York’s friend lived in another town.
My new owner had many horses and coaches(四轮大马车). Some of them made us wear tight reins. Other drivers were careless. One evening, I was pulling a coach with another horse. His name was Rory. We often worked together. We came to a corner. I heard the sound of another horse and coach. It was coming towards us. Its driver was careless. This coach hit Rory. Rory was badly hurt. He was sick for a long time.
I now worked with Peggy. She was a beautiful horse but walked strangely. “I walked strangely,” she told me, “because my legs are short. My first owner didn’t worry about this. He didn’t make me move quickly. Then he sold me to a farmer. Some farmers are good owners. This one was not. He didn’t care about me. He cared only about going quickly. He was always whipping(抽打) me. One day, I fell. He also fell and was badly hurt.”
My next owner was Mr. Barry. The name of his stableman(马夫) was Fletcher. At first, Fletcher gave me good food. Then he stopped giving me good food. He gave me only grass. He took my food away and gave it to his rabbits. One day, Mr. Barry’s friend came to see him. “Your horse doesn’t look well,” he said. “He’s too thin. He’s not getting enough food to eat.”“I buy a lot of food for him,” Mr. Barry said. “Perhaps your stableman is stealing(偷) your horse’s
food,” Mr. Barry’s friend said. Mr. Barry found out the truth. He sent for the police. They took Fletcher away.

Plants and animals are living things. But plants can’t mo ve around the same way as animals do. So how flowers grow here and there all over the grass? The seeds (种子) of plants move. That’s why some plants have very light seeds. The wind moves them from place to place. They seem to fly. The wind will take them away. Then they start new plants where the wind puts them down.
You can find some treesnear the sea. The seeds of these trees fall into the water. Then the water takes them away. They may stay in the water for many days. Then the water pushes them up on the new ground. There they begin to grow.
Some seeds are sticky(粘的). They may stick to men’s hats or women’s coats. When people see the seeds, t hey’ll pick them off. It’s easy for all these seeds to start to grow after falling to the ground.
Other animals help plant seeds, too. Squirrels make holes in the ground to store nuts for flood in the winter. Nuts are seeds. Sometimes the squirrels forget where they put the nuts. Then they can’t find them. When it gets hot again, these seeds start new trees. So the squirrels have really planted trees!
73. Both plants and animals are ____________________________________. But plants can’t

Good morning, boys and girls:
Our school plans to go to Zhalong Nature Reserve to watch birds. Here is the plan of the day.At 9:00 a.m., we will meet at the school gate on Sunny Street. The bus leaves at 9:15 a.m. Then we’ll arrive at Zhalong Nature Reserve at 10:00 a.m. After we arrive there, we’ll do birdwatching. At 11:45 a.m., we must get on the bus in front of Wildlife Restaurant. It will bring us back to school.
I began to live in the countryside when I was a child. There were many kinds of birds there when I was young. Every morning, lots of sparrows liked singing and jumping in the tree outside my window, while the swans were busy flying out to find food for their babies. Sometimes in the afternoon, I could even see eagles flying in the sky.
After twenty years, I can’t see many of themnow. I can seldom see the eagles or the swans. The number of the sparrows is getting smaller. Only some of them sing in the morning.
Why do the birds leave here? First, I think it is because the environment is becoming worse now. The bird can’t find enough food for their babies. Second, I think it is because people often kill them for food.
Without birds around, we won’t feel happy any more. So, we must protect them. Why don’t
we do something to help them today?
