This is a Hungarian poem about Wales, All Hungarian children are taught it in school...

A Walesi Bรกrdok / The Welsh Bards

Edward the king, the English king,
Bestride his tawny steed,
"For I will see if Wales," said he,
"Accepts my rule indeed.
"Are stream and mountain fair to see?
Are meadow grasses good?
Do corn-lands bear a crop more rare
Since wash'd with rebel's blood?

"And are the wretched people there,
Whose insolence I broke
As happy as the oxen are
Beneath the driver's yoke?
"In truth this Wales, Sire, is a gem,
The fairest in your crown:
The stream and field rich harvest yield,
And fair and dale and down.

"And all the wretched people there
Are calm as man could crave;
Their hovels stand throughout the land
As silent as the grave."
