A Red, Red Rose ( by Robert Burns)
O my luve's like a red, red rose.
That's newly sprung in June;
O my luve's like a melodie
That's sweetly play'd in tune.
As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will love thee still, my Dear,
Till a'the seas gang dry.
Till a' the seas gang dry, my Dear,
And the rocks melt wi' the sun:
I will luve thee still, my Dear,
While the sands o'life shall run.
And fare thee weel my only Luve!
And fare thee weel a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho' it were ten thousand mile! Моя кохана
Моя кохана - пишна рожа,
Краса весняних днів;
Моя кохана - мелодійний,
Приємно-зграйний спів.

Яка краса твоя безмежна,
Така й любов моя;
Тебе любитиму я, поки
Всі висохнуть моря.

I висохнуть моря, кохана,
Й розтопиться граніт;
Тебе любитиму я, поки
Не западеться світ.

Прощай, прощай, моя кохана,
Я йду, я йду звідсіль!
Та знову я прийду, кохана,
Й за десять тисяч миль!

Team 2.
Sonnet 130: My Mistress' Eyes Are Nothing Like the Sun
(by William Shakespeare)
My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;
Coral is far more red than her lips' red;
If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun;
If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.
I have seen roses damasked, red and white,
But no such roses see I in her cheeks,
And in some perfumes is there more delight
Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.
I love to hear her speak, yet well I know,
That music hath a far more pleasing sound.
I grant I never saw a goddess go;
My mistress when she walks treads on the ground.
And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare
As any she belied with false compare
Сонет №130
Її очей до сонця не рівняли,
Корал ніжніший за її уста.
Не білосніжні плеч її овали.
Мов, з дроту чорного коса густа.
Троянд багато зустрічав я всюди,
Та на її обличчя не стрічав,
І дише так вона, як дишуть люди,
А не конвалії між: диких трав.
І голосу її рівнять не треба
До, музики, милішої мені.
Не знаю про ходу богинь із неба,
А кроки милої -- цілком земні.
І все ж вона -- найкраща поміж: тими.
Що славлені похвалами пустими.
