Many people know Robert Schumann was an important musician, but they do not know that his wife, Clara Wieck Schumann, was in fact more famous than he in their time.

Clara was born in 1819. In her time, most women did not appear before the public. Clara, however, started to play the piano in public at the age of nine and was very successful.

In 1840, Clara got married. She became very busy with the housework and her children. It was hard for her to find time to practice the piano. But Clara could never forget her love for music; she felt she had to share it with other people. In 1842, Clara began to play in public again.

When Robert died in 1856, Clara had to make money for their seven children by herself. She taught music and played the piano around Europe. During this hard time, music always gave her comfort and joy. Clara died at 77. Now she is still thought to be one of the best musicians in history.

When I was a little girl, my family lived in a small village. There was a very beautiful river near my home. The water was clean and cool. I liked to go fishing there with my mom. We would catch fish, look for clams and play in the water. There were also a lot of birds near the river. We would spend all day watching the birds. Life was beautiful and wonderful in the old days.

Now my family lives in the city. Last Sunday my daughter asked me to take her to see the beautiful river I was always talking about. "I want so much to go fishing there with you and grandma," she said.

When we went to the river, we only saw a factory and a mountain of garbage. My mom was surprised, my daughter was disappointed, and I was sad --- the river was my best friend; I grew up with it. Now there are no fish in it; the birds are gone, too. I hear it crying for help. But what can I do?
