Mid-tern Composition
Academic No.:97006
Topic: Spotlight on Beauty of Taiwan
Taiwan is a beauty island. In 16th Century, Portuguese called it Formosa. Its meaning is a lovely isle. Now it’s still pretty for me. North of Taiwan is a good place to travel.

Yang-Ming-Shan National Park is the most northern one of the six National Park in Taiwan. There are fresh air and attractive sights. February and March is its blossom. Cherry blooms and azalea is the representatives. You can also see the butterfly, bees, squirrels, etc. If you are tired, you can go to the vicinal inn and enjoy its hot spring. You will feel so relaxed and released.

If you are a gourmand, you can’t miss the Taiwan traditional snack. You can go to Kee-Lung. Along the road of temple, there are lot of street ventors. You must try the morsels. I like the“Oyster Omelet”most. It is a dish of beaten eggs cooked in a frying pan and usually served with a savoury topping or filling. It’s very delicious, mouth-watering and tasty. You will love it.

Starry, starry night繁星點點的夜裡Portraits hung in empty hall一幅幅的肖像懸掛在空盪盪的大廳裡Frameless heads on nameless walls無鑲框的臉倚靠在寂然的牆上With eyes that watch the world and can't forget配上一雙看遍世事且永不遺忘的雙眼Like the strangers that you've met就像你曾遇見的陌生人The ragged man in ragged clothes那些衣衫襤褸的人們The silver thorn of bloody rose也像血紅的玫瑰上銀色的刺Lie crushed and broken on the virgin snow斷裂並靜臥在初下的雪上
Now I think I know what you tried to say to me我想我已明白,你想說的是什麼How you suffered for your sanity當你清醒時你有多麼痛苦Then how you tried to set them free你努力的想讓它們得到解脫They would not listen, they're not listening still但他們卻不理會,現在依然如此Perhaps, they never will...也許,他們永遠不會……
