The City at Dawn
It is alway a wonder-ful time to gaze at the beauty of nature in the morning.
It makes our minds become so peaceful and calm
that all our worries and sorrows leave us at once.
But as residents of the city,
we can hardly enjoy nature's morning beauty,
despite the fact that we rise at dawn.
The morning peaceful atmosphere is in- variably spoiled by the usual city life.
Even before daybreak
the trams and buses have already begun to disturb the silence.
And the sounds made by the brooms of the street-sweepers are the typical noises
that jar your ears in the early morning in the streets of a city.
Soon,school children and office workers begin to set off to their destinations.
The streets are jammed by pubic vehicles and motorcars.
The roads are all crowded with people of all ranks.
Buses are packed with passengers who are squashed so tightly together
that they seem to be tinned sardines.
At this hour,the city everywhere is filled with all sorts of noises,
adding to the rumbling of trams
and the honks of the big and small motorcars,commercial vehicles,etc.
It seems the city in the morning
is like an exodus of all the citizens from their homes.
