Let the delightful words of this beautiful poem,
charm and inspire your busy day.


--Description: Burns R., 18th C, Adoration, Love--



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.

As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
So deep in love am I :
And I will love 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 love thee still, my dear,
While the sands o’ life shall run.

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.

--Word of the Day: nubilous (NOO-buh-luhs, NYOO-), adjective
Meaning: 1. Cloudy, misty, or foggy.  2. Vague or obscure.
Example: "All of which nubilous musing serves little purpose, except to show that cloud-gazing, as a way of passing time, has appealed to all humanity since the earliest of times."
