The water clock has three parts.On the left is a tank holding water.This tank has a narrow opening through which water drips into a second container,also a tank.Inside the second tank is a floating object,to the end of which is attached a long pole with an arrow.On the right is a cylinder with the numbers one to twelve written on it.As the water from the tank on the left drips into the second tank,the level rises and with it the lfoating object.This causes the arrow to move from one number to the next.One thus has a twelve hour clock.After twelve hours the second tank is emptied and the process is begun again.
If I had a boat,I would sail away across the seven seas,wandering and drifting as I went to see the world.I have loved the sea ever since I was a small child.I often strolled along the beach,all alone,and gazed into the blue horizon,wishing that I could be there.
Some day,if my wish came true,I would sail alone on a never-ending journey,with only the sunny blue sky and the peacefully calm sea as my companion.I knew I would not be lonely,because there would be the sea breezes bumming me a lullaby and carrying a salty spray on to my face.
And even when there was a storm,I would face it bravely as if with a challenge;I should prove myself a man of strong will and power.Oh,life should be an adventure!
When I was young, I watched a movie "the sound of music" with my friends. I was touched by the love affairs and also shocked by the music. I didn't understand music at that time; however, I can feel the power of music. Fron then on, I had a dream to become a musician. I want to play the masterpieces of outstanding musicians by my own hands. I want to tell people my understanding and interpretation of music by my instrument. I also want to write my own pieces of music. I hope all the other people will love my music. Maybe, others will keep playing my music even after my death. I want to leave something to this lovely world, so I want to become a musician. No only because I love music, but also I love this world and I want to use my own way to express my feeling.
