Will you answer my question?
Who is the famous Scottish (Ukrainian) poet?
Tomorrow we will speak about R. Kipling, and that's why today I Offer you a fragment of his poem. So pupils, open your hearts to noble ideas, because he wrote this poem as a will to his son:
(The pupils listen to the poem)
If you can yourself when all man doubt you
But make allowance for their doubting too.
If you can wait and not be tired by waiting,
Or being life about, don't dial in lies
Or being hated, don't give way to hating
And yet don't look too good nor talk too wise.
If you can dream and not make dreams you master,
If you can think and not make thoughts your aim
If you can meet the Triumph and Disaster
And treat those importers just the same.
If you fill the unforgiving minute
With sixty second worth of distance run.
Yours is the Earth and everything that's in it
And which is more - you'll be a Man. My son!
