(By Walter de la Mare)

        Slowly, silently, now the moon
        Walks the night in her silver shoon;2
        This way, and that, she peers,3 and sees
        Silver fruit upon silver trees,
        One by one the casements4 catch
        Her beams beneath the silvery thatch,5
        Couched in his kennel,6 like a log,7
        With paws of silver sleeps the dog;
        From their shadowy cote8 the white breasts peep9
        Of doves in a silver-feathered sleep;10
        A harvest mouse goes scampering11 by
        With silver claws12 and silver eye
        And moveless fish in the water gleam,13
        By silver reeds14 in a silver stream.

1 hay Ч сено
2 shoon Ч башмачки (устар.)
3 peers Ч смотрит
4 casements Ч окна
5 thatch Ч соломенна€ крыша
6 couched in his kennel Ч лЄжа в будке
7 a log Ч брЄвнышко
8 cote Ч голуб€тн€
9 peep Ч выгл€дывают
10 silver-feathered sleep Ч окутанный серебристыми перь€ми сон
11 scampering Ч- вприпрыжку
12 claws Ч коготки
13 gleam Ч сверкают
14 reeds Ч тростник, камыш

77. Listen to the song, 48, and sing it along.

Yankee Doodle

        Father and I went down to camp
        Along with Captain Doodling;
        There we saw the men and boys
        As thick as hasty1 pudding.


            Yankee Doodle, keep it up,2
            Yankee Doodle dandy!3
            Mind the music and the step
            And with the girls be handy!

        There was Captain Washington
        Upon a slapping stallion,4
        Giving orders to his men Ч
        I guess there was a million.


        Then the feathers on his hat,
        They looked so very fine, oh!
        I wanted desperately to get
        To give to my Jemima.


1 hasty Ч приготовленный наспех
2 keep it up Ч не унывай
3 dandy Ч щЄголь
4 slapping stallion Ч скачущий жеребец

78. Did you know that ...

... the song УYankee DoodleФ became popular with American soldiers during the American Revolutionary War? The soldiers changed the words of the original British song that made fun of the Americans:

        Yankee Doodle went to town,
        Riding on a pony.
        Stuck a feather in his hat,
        And called it macaroni.

During the American Civil War the word yankee meant a person born or living in the northern states. Now it mostly means a citizen of the United States of America.

... fox hunting started in Britain in the 13th century? It takes place every year between November and spring. Riders often wear red coats. People think that it is an occupation for the rich. Many people in Britain would like to see hunting stopped as they believe it is a cruel sport. Young people often form groups and go to hunting grounds where they make a noise and try to stop hunting because they think that wild animals should not be killed in this way.
