Texte ( ce texte va avec la pièce jointe)
a terrible catastrophe has
happened : nearly all the people on earth hava gone blind'.The narrator
remenbers the apperance of a new plant, the triffied ... not long
before the trouble began.
My introduction to a triffied came
early.It so happened that we had one growing in our own garden .The
plant was quite well developed before any of us noticed it , for it
had taken root behind the bit of hedge that screened the rubbish
heap. It wasen't doing any harm there, and it wasn't in anyone's way.
nowadays when everyone knows only too
well what a triffid looks like , it is difficult to recall how odd
and somehow foreign the first ones appeared to us.
nobody, as far as i know, feld any
misgivings or alarm about them then.
I have a picture in my memory of my
father examining ours and puzzling over it .He leant over it ,
peering at it through his glasses and blowing gently through his
moustache. he inspected the straight stem, and the woody bole from
which it sprang. He gave curious, if not very penetrative attention
to the three small , bare sticks which grew straight up beside the
stem. He smoothed the green leaves between his finger and thumb as if
their texture might tell him something . Then he peered into the
curious , funnel- like formation at the top of the stem .I remember
the first time he lifted me up to look into that conical cup.
I did not touch it , but i knew it must
be sticky because there were flies and other small insects
struggling in it More than once my father ruminated that it was
pretty queer , and observed that one of these days he really must try
to find out what it was .
I don 't think he ever made the effort.
The thing would be about four feet high
then. There must have been plenty f them about , growing up quietly
and inoffensively, with nobody taking any particular notice of them.
And so the one in our garden continuted its growth peacefully, as
did thousands like it in neglected sports all over the world .
it was some little time later that the
first one picked up its roods , and walked .
