My Heart’s in the Highlands

Robert Burns

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 valour, the country of worth;

Wherever I wander, wherever I love;

The hills of the Highlands forever I love.

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.

P3: I’ll recite S.Marshak’s translation of this poem in Russian.

В горах мое сердце

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!

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
