СТИХ ЧИТАЕТ УЧИТЕЛЬ В КОНЦЕ ЭКСКУРСИИ
Но вот слеза вдруг по щеке,
И грустно нам вот так,
Смотрю на Лондон и уже,
Увы, в последний раз.
И вот гудит наш самолёт,
И вот мы в облаках,
В Россию мы летим – домой,
А щёки все в слезах.
О Лондон, ты любовь моя,
I like it very much.
We don’t say to you: “Прощай!”
But we tell you: “Good bye!”
