Please Enjoy A Red, Red Rose by Robert Burns

Valentine’s Day is this week and romance is in the air. Everywhere you look, you see hearts, roses, and cute little teddy bears. In celebration of the love holiday, I’m going to share some of my favorite love poems this week. These are the poems that made my tender young heart swoon so many years ago. They remind of a time when I was a true romantic before life had a chance to disillusion me.

This is one of the first love poems I ever read in school. It flowed off the tongue so effortlessly that I was spell-bound.

A Red, Red Rose By Robert Burns

O my Luve is like a red, red rose That’s newly sprung in June; O my Luve is like the melody That’s sweetly played in tune.

So fair art thou, 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 love thee still, my dear, While the sands o’ life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only luve! And fare thee weel awhile! And I will come again, my luve, Though it were ten thousand mile.

I hope you enjoyed this beautiful poem that has been loved and recited countless times for over 200 years. Thank you for reading Ozarks Maven! If you’ve enjoyed my little seeds of wisdom and joy, please subscribe to Ozarks Maven, Like Ozarks Maven on Facebook, or follow me on Twitter @OzarksMaven.
