Inspired by Burns and a rose #poetry #Burns


Fallen Rose

A Red, Red Rose
By Robert Burns
~~~
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 play’d in tune.
~~~
As 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 luve thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.
~~~
And fare thee well, my only Luve
And fare thee well, a while!
And I will come again, my Luve,
Tho’ it were ten thousand mile.
~~~

Inspired by a Rose

My love is like the rose

red are  her lips that speak

soft fragrance on her skin

I wish to breathe so deep

~

She is so fair my dear

her eyes they becoken me

deeper than blue sky

foamier than the sea

~

I cherish you  my heart

true to the end you’ll see

on one knee I did ask

loving devotion thou didst read

~

I bid thee now farewell

yet for a little while

It cannot be too long

my world wrapped up in your smile

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we started working with an E. African team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. As a bio major and nurse, it is exciting to use my knowledge to encourage young minds to love science. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.
