76. Listen to the poem, 47, and read it.
(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 — сено
77. Listen to the song, 48, and sing it along.
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 —
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 — приготовленный наспех
78. Did you know that ...
... the song “Yankee Doodle” 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.
