Stanza (1) Burns presents two similes, the first comparing his love to a rose and the second comparing his love to a melody.

Stanza (2) Burns addresses the young lady as bonnie (pretty).

Stanza (3) Burns links the first line of the third stanza with the last line of the second stanza by repetition.

Stanza (4) Burns again addresses his beloved, noting that though he must leave her for a while he will return for her even if he must travel ten thousand miles.

A Red, Red Rose by Robert Burns
A Red, Red Rose

[Hear Red, Red Rose]
Type: Poem
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!
by: Group 5

Number of stanzas:
Burns wrote the poem in four quatrains (four-line stanzas)

Burns clearly states and restates the theme: The speaker loves the young lady beyond measure. The only way he can express his love for her is through vivid similes and hyperbolic comparisons.

A Red, Red Rose by Robert Burns

Women in Literature
Robert Burns

Love aspect:
We can feel the platonic love In "A Red Red Rose". The similes he uses are meant to show us the grandness of love. He compares his love to a rose and to a melody, showing us that love is beautiful and precious. Burns also shows us how love is not fleeting; that if it really is love it will always be there no matter how near or far the two people may be from each other. Finally, the poem tells the meaning of love - true love, and it is durable to believe those reminiscences if fall in love to somebody.
