Monday Morning Poems : “A Red, Red Rose” by : Robert Burns

Like a Red Rose on June Nigel Borrington

Like a Red Rose in June

A Red, Red Rose

by Robert Burns

My love is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June :
My love is like the 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 a’ the seas gang dry.

Till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rocks melt wi’ the sun :
And I will love thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.

And fare thee weel, my only love,
And fare thee weel a while !
And I will come again, my love,
Thou’ it were ten thousand mile.

Happy Burns night to everyone who would like the celibate the life and works of this great Scottish poet and Artists.

The following images are from a visit I made last year to his birthplace Museum located in the town of Ayr, Alloway, Scotland

Once again Happy Burns night !!!

Birthplace Museum

Robert Burns Birthplace Museum offers a truly unique encounter with Scotland’s favourite son.

The museum comprises the famous Burns Cottage where the poet was born, the historic landmarks where he set his greatest work, the elegant monument and gardens created in his honour and a modern museum housing the world’s most important collection of his life and works.

The images below I feel show the life that this young poet lived and include the small rooms that he grew up in with his brother and sisters ( Analella, Gilbert and Agnes Burn), the display of the bed they shared and their bed clothes, I felt was just brilliant.
