Thoughtful Thursdays | Summer | A Red, Red Rose

Today’s poem choice takes its inspiration from the red roses currently growing in The Rose Garden. It is a beautifully pure expression of love.

 


A Red, Red Rose

 

O my Luve’s like a red, red rose,

That’s newly sprung in June:

O my Luve’s like the melodie

That’s sweetly played in tune!

 

As fair art though, my bonnie lass,

So deep in luve am I;

And I will luve 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 sand o’ life shall run.

 

And fare thee weel, my only Luve,

And fare thee weel a while!

And I will come again, my Luve,

Though it were ten thousand mile.

 

Robert Burns 1759-1796
