O my Luve’s like a Red, Red Rose
By Robert Burns (1759–1796)
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 played in tune.
As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,        5
  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:        10
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 awhile!
And I will come again, my luve,        15
  Though it were ten thousand mile.
