ABC WEDNESDAY--"R" is for "red rose"











My love is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June :
My love is like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune......

....And fare thee weel, my only love,
And fare thee weel a while !
And I will come again, my love,
Thou’ it were ten thousand mile.

 So wrote Robert Burns, Scotland's national poet.

Do you have or have you ever had a love that is like a red, red rose?

See other R's on ABC WEDNESDAY.

What a gorgeous image! To answer your question: yes, for a while anyway—then just like a rose, it wilted.
