Transcript of A Red, red rose

A RED, RED ROSE
by Robert Burns
presentation by Madelyn Crooks
MEET ROBERT BURNS
O My Luve's like a red, red rose,
That's newly sprung in June;
O My Luve's like a melodie
That's sweetly played in tune.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in luve am I;
And I will luve thee still, my dear,
Til a' the seas gang dry.
part 1
Till a' the seas gang dry, my dear,
And the rock melt wi' the sun:
O I will love thee still, my dear,
While the sands o' life shall run.

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