Listen, watch & enjoy!A RED, RED ROSE O, my luve's like a red, red rose.That's newly sprung in June;O my luve's like a melodieThat's sweetly play'd in tune.As fair art thou, my bonnie lass,So deep in luve 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: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 a while!And I will come again, my Luve,Tho' it were ten thousand mile! Robert Burns

Listen, watch & enjoy!SONNET 130My mistress' eyes are nothing like the sun;Coral is far more red than her lips' red;If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun; If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head.I have seen roses damasked, red and white,But no such roses see I in her cheeks;And in some perfumes is there more delight Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks.I love to hear her speak, yet well I knowThat music hath a far more pleasing sound.I grant I never saw a goddess go; My mistress when she walks treads on the ground. And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare As any she belied with false compare. William Shakespeare

Listen & enjoy!BLUE ROSESRoses red and roses whitePlucked I for my love's delight.She would none of all my posies--Bade me gather her blue roses.Half the world I wandered through,Seeking where such flowers grew.Half the world unto my questAnswered me with laugh and jest.Home I came at wintertide,But my silly love had diedSeeking with her latest breathRoses from the arms of Death.It may be beyond the graveShe shall find what she would have.Mine was but an idle quest--Roses white and red are best! Rudyard Kipling

Listen & enjoy!
