The fairest land a man can see!

And seagulls sail the sky above,
I hear the song of joy unfailing
To those green banks, the land I love

(Запись the Beatles, которая нравится 10-классникам)
The Romans call Britain<<Albion>> (<<White>>) in Latin because of the white chalk cliffs of the Southern Coast-the 1st thing they saw.
And did those feet in ancient time
Walk upon England`s mountains green,
And was the holy Lamb of God
On England`s pleasant pastures seen?
I will not cease from Mental Fight
Not shall my Sword sleep in my hand
Till we have built Jerusalem
In England`s green and pleasant land.
