Poetry Friday - Robert Burns

In honor of Scottish Poet Robert Burns' birthday (249 years ago) I thought I'd dig up a little of his poetry.

O, My Luve's like a red, red rose
by Robert Burns

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 play'd in tune.
Read the rest of the poem here.
The Poetry Friday round-up this week is at Mentor Texts.

And Pat Boone happens to sing this in my favorite movie of all time.
Journey to The Center of the Earth.

OK, I know what I'm watching this weekend.

Happy Burns Day! I knew I had to go with one for "wee Rabbie" today, too.

I went with Burns just before New Years, so today I went with brooding Byron. But ach! I'm glad you posted this one. (Burns is out of copyright, btw, for future reference.)
