余憶童稚時,能張目對日,明察秋毫。見藐小微物,必細察其紋理,故時有物外之趣。………一日,見二蟲鬥草間,觀之,興正濃,忽有龐然大物,拔山倒樹而來,蓋一癩蝦蟆也。舌一吐而二蟲盡為所吞。余年幼,方出神,不覺呀然驚恐。神定,捉蝦蟆,鞭數十,驅之別院。

What I thinking is about, there it's a frog that ate the bugs. And somebody pick it to another place. Where the words come from a Chinese textbook in junior high school in Taiwan.

This is in quasi-Classical Chinese and taken from 浮生六记.

Why not browse the translation by Lin Yutang?
