A Red Red Rose
at Noon

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 play'd in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonie 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;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
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' 'twere ten thousand mile!

(Robert Burns)


I spied this red red rose
while biking through a nearby neighbourhood
and had to stop, unbundle my camera
and try capture its beauty
in the noon light

  1. You caught it perfectly, Merisi. And I do love me some Mr. Burns. Thank you!

  2. A beautiful vibrant color!

  3. Well done in the harsh noon day sun. Its like the gorgeous red rose has a spotlight on it.
    I think I can almost smell the lucious fragrance from here.

  4. The play of light-- wonderful. And the poem -- an old favorite. Hugs to you, Merisi.
