Enjoy a poem with the red rose. 🌹
A RED, RED ROSE
O, My Love Is Like A Red Red Rose
That's newly sprung in June
O, My Love is like a melody
That's sweetly played in tune
As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in love am I
And I will love thee still, my dear,
Till all the seas gang dry.
Till all the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt with the sun
O, I will love thee still, my dear
While the sands of life shall run
And fare thee well, my only love
And fare thee well awhile!
And I will come again, my love
Though it were ten thousand mile
O my luve is the a red, red rose,
O my luve is like the melodie,
Thats sweetly played in tune.
As fair art thou, my bonic 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;
O I will luve thee still, my deat,
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.
