I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o’er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
On lovely land whose mountain ran
From peak to peak to seek the sun
And where we take the sacred fire
Of life and love to raise them higher.
Oh, Kingdom, oh promised land.
This is the dream our fathers planned
And though the rich have ravished you
We swear to make this dream come true.
Oh, lovely land, where April rains,
And April suns break ancient chains
And where we too such bounties share
Forever free and ever fair.
P3: Dear friends you are welcome to Great Britain! The British Isles lie to the north-west of the continent of Europe and consist of two main islands, the larger of which is Great Britain, the smaller is Ireland. These and over five hundred small islands are known collectively as the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, with a total area of 244, 1 thousand sq. km.
P4: Great Britain is the country with many interesting historical events. Imagine that you are in Britain of the Middle Ages!
Long-long ago the biggest part of England was covered with thick green forests. Not far from Nottingham the gang of robbers hid in the Sherwood Forest. They were dressed in the clothes of green colour. All of them could shoot arrows and were perfect shooters. The ringleader of those men was fearless Robin Hood. Robin Hood and his followers were famous for their noble deeds. They tried to protect poor people from cruelty of their masters. Very often they took money from the rich to give it to the poor. Side by side with Robin Hood fearlessly fought his beloved Maid Marian. They got married not in the church but under the canopy of the legendary Sherwood Forest.
Robin: Oh, Marian, why are you here?
Marian: I want to be with you, Robin. I want to fight with you.
Robin: My darling, this life is so difficult, and there is danger everywhere.
Marian: I am not afraid of danger.
Robin: Besides, Sheriff’s bandits are after our men all the time. Why have you come?
Marian: I know the forest.
Robin: You are a woman. You are not strong.
Marian: My hand is as strong as yours. Try, please.
Robin: My dearest. I don’t know how I will live in the forest without you, when you go away. But you mustn’t stay.
Marian: But I will not go away. I am going to stay with you. I can fight as well as you do. Oh, Robin, do not say that. The sun doesn’t shine and the birds do not sing when I am not with you. Let me stay with you and I will never let you down. I will be your comrade in joy and sorrow.
God save our gracious Queen,
long live our noble Queen!
God save the Queen!
Send her victorious, happy and glorious,
Long to reign over us,
God save the Queen!
Thy choicest gifts in store
On her be pleased to pour,
Long may she reign.
May she defend our laws
And give us ever cause,
To sing with heart and voice
God save the Queen!

(Song “Yellow Submarine)
Cities and Thrones and Powers
Stand on times eye
Almost as long as flowers,
Which daily day:
But, as new buds put forth
To glad new men,
Out of spent and unconsidered Earth
The cities rise again.

P: Scotland is the land of myths and mysteries. There are many old castles there and every castle has its ghosts. They say that Glammis Castle (shows the picture of the castle) has nine of them, and, of course, everyone knows about Loch Ness monster.
Many famous people were born in Scotland, but one of the best-known is Robert Burns. In his poems he described the beauty of his native land and the life of poor people. One of the best-known Robert Burns’ poems is “My Heart’s in the Highlands”. Every year Scottish people celebrate his birthday. The dinner begins with the sound of bagpipes and the “haggis”, Scotland’s national dish. Then everyone reads poems and sings songs written by the great Robbie Burns himself.
My heart’s in the Highlands? My heart isn’t here
My heart’s in the Highlands a chasing the deer,
A –chasing the wild deer and following the roe
My heart’s in the Highlands, wherever I go!
Farewell to the Highlands, farewell to the North
The birthplace of velour, the country of worth!
Wherever I wander, wherever I rove
The hills of the Highlands for ever I love
Farewell to the mountains high cover’d with snow
Farewell to the straits and green valleys bellow
Farewell to the forests and wild-hanging woods
Farewell to the torrents and loud-pouring floods!
P: Robert Burns was married Jean Armour, his “Bonnie Jean”. He devoted to Jean many beautiful poems! My love
My love is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June.
My love is like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.
As fair art thou, my bonnie lass
So deep in love am I.
And I will love thee steel, my Dear
While the sands of life shall run.
And fare thee wheel, my only love
And fare thee wheel a while.
And I will come again my love
Though it were ten thousand miles.
(Song “My Bonnie”)

P: We cannot speak about Great Britain without observing some of its traditions and customs. If you arrive to Great Britain you’ll hear the word “tradition” everywhere.

As you remember all British people like Christmas best of all.
A beautiful time of the year.
With carols and tinsel
And lots of good cheer
With sharing and caring
And hearts drawing near –
A beautiful time in the year.
(Song “Silent Night”)
