My heart's in the Highlands
My heart’s in the Highlands, my heart is not 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 valor, the country of worth!
Wherever I wander, wherever I go,
The hills of the Highlands forever I love.
В ГОРАХ МОЕ СЕРДЦЕ (перевод С.Я.Маршака)
В горах мое сердце... Доныне я там.
По следу оленя лечу по скалам.
Гоню я оленя, пугаю козу.
В горах мое сердце, а сам я внизу.
Прощай, моя родина! Север, прощай, Отечество славы и доблести край.
По белому свету судьбою гоним,
Навеки останусь я сыном твоим!
Прощайте, вершины под кровлей снегов,
Прощайте, долины и скаты лугов,
Прощайте, поникшие в бездну леса,
Прощайте, потоков лесных голоса.
В горах мое сердце... Доныне я там.
По следу оленя лечу по скалам.
Гоню я оленя, пугаю козу.
В горах мое сердце, а сам я внизу!
Somerset W. Maugham
Robert Louis Stevenson
Lewis Carroll
Roald Dahl
