A love letter



O my luve is like a red, red rose,
That's newly sprung in June;
O my luve is like the melodie,
That's sweetly played 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 sand 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' it were ten thousand mile.

i love that beautiful picture ... it evokes all sorts of emotions, doesn't it? and such a lovely poem to go with it too! :)

that's such a gorgeous picture.. the poem reminds me of that song "Fare Thee Well Love" by the Rankin Family - it's so heartbreakingly beautiful.

Check the lyrics here if you're interested: http://www.traditionalmusic.co.uk/folk-song-lyrics/Fare_Thee_Well_Love.htm

(and seriously, download the song. it makes me so melancholy!)
