The bicycling craze came in when we were just about at the right age to enjoy it．At first even “safety” bicycles were too dangerous and improper for ladies to ride, and they had to have tricycles．My mother had(I believe)the first female tricycle in Cambridge；and l had a little one，and we used to go out for family rides，all together；my father in front on a bicycle． and my poor brather Charles standing miserable on the bar behind lny mother．I found it very hard work．pounding(轰隆隆行进)away on my hard tyres；a glorious，but not a pleasurable pastinle．
Then, one day at lunch, my father said he had just seen a new kind of tyre，filled up,with air，and he thought it might be a success．And soon after that everyone had bicycles，ladies and all; and bicycling became the smart thing，and the lords and ladies had their pictures in the papers，riding along in the park，in straw hats．
My mother must have fallen off her bicycle pretty often，for I remember seeing the most appalling cuts and bruises(青肿)on her legs．But she never complained，and always kept these accidents to herself．However，the great Mrs. Phillips，our cook, always knew all a hout them；as indeed she knew practically everything that ever happened．She used to draw us into the servants' hall to tell us privately：“Her Ladyship had a nasty fall yesterday；she cut both her knees and sprained her wrist．But don't Iet her know I told you．”So we never dared say anything．Similar little accidents used to occur when，at the age of nearly Seventy，she insisted on learning to drive a car．She never mastered the art of reversing(倒车)，and was in every way an unconventional and terrifying driver． Mrs．Phillips used then to tell us：“Her Ladyship ran into the back of a milk-cart yesterday；but it wasn't much hurt”；or“A policeman stopped her Ladyship because she was on the wrong side of the road；but she said she didn't know what the white Line on the road meant，so he explained arld Let her go on．”Mrs．Phillips must have had an excellent Intelligence Service at her command，for the stories were always true enough．

The Mother Goose Stories, so well known to children all over the word, are commonly said to have been written by a little old woman for her grandchildren. According to some people, she lived in Boston, and her real name was Elizabeth Vergoose. Her son-in-law, a printer named Thomas Fleet, was supposed to have published the famous stories and poems for small children in 1719. However, no copy of this book has ever been found, and most scholars doubt the truth of this story—and doubt, moreover, that Mother Goose was ever a real person. They point out that the name is a direct translation of the French “Mere I’ Oye.” In 1697 the Frenchman Charles Perrault published the first book in which this name was used. The collection contains eight tales, including “Sleeping Beauty,”“Cinderella,” and “Puss in Boots.” But Perrault did not originate these stories; they were already quite popular in his day, and he only collected them.
In 1729 there appeared an English translation of Perrault’s collection,Robert Samber’s Histories or Tales of Past times, Told by MotherGoose(London,1729), which introduced “Sleeping Beauty”, “Little Red-hood”, “Puss in Boots”,”Cinderella” and other Perrault’s tales to English-speaking audiences. These were fairy tales(童话)。 John Newbery published a book of English rhymes，Mother Goose’s Melody, or Sonnets for the Cradle( London, undated,1765), which switched the focus from fairy tale to nursery rhymes, and in English this was until recently the primary meaning for Mother Goose.A book of poems for children entitled Mother Goose’s Melody was published in England in1781, and the name “Mother Goose” has been associated with children’s poetry ever since.

I don’t remember when it first started annoying me — her hands pushing my hair that way. But it 36 annoy me, for 37 felt work-worn and rough against my young skin. 38 , one night, I shouted out at her, “Don’t do that anymore — your hands are too rough!” She didn’t say anything in 39 . But never again did my mother close out my day with that familiar 40 of her love. Lying awake long afterward, my words stuck to me. But pride kept my conscience back, and I didn’t tell her I was 41 .
Time after time, with the passing years, my thoughts 42 to that night. By then I missed my mother’s hands, missed her goodnight kiss upon my forehead. Sometimes the incident seemed very 43 , sometimes far away. But always it hid in the back of my 44 .
Well, the years have passed, and I’m not a little girl any more. Mom is 45 her mid-seventies and those hands I once thought to be so rough are 46 doing things for me and my family. She cooks the best fried chicken in the world, gets stains out of blue jeans and still 47 on dishing out ice cream at any hour of the day or night. Through the years, my mother’s hands have put in countless hours of labor.
Now, my own children are grown and gone. Mom no longer has Dad, and on special occasions, I find myself drawn next door to 48 the night with her. So it was late on Thanksgiving Eve, as I slept in the bedroom of my 49 , a familiar hand hesitantly stole 50 my face to brush the hair from my forehead. Then a kiss, ever so gently, touched my eyebrow.
In my memory, for the thousandth time, I recalled the night, when my young voice 51 , “Don’t do that anymore — your hands are too rough!” Catching Mom’s hand in hand, I spoke out how sorry I was 52 that night. I thought she’d remember, 53 I did. But Mom didn’t know what I was talking about. She had forgotten — and forgiven — long ago.
That night, I fell asleep with a new 54 for my gentle mother and her 55 hands.
