Red Umbrellas

I didn't even notice until I looked at the picture after I got home that these are Coca-Cola Umbrellas! The sun was almost too bright and we had to finish our calzone and big chicken salad indoors. I love the way the bright sun turned the tops of the umbrellas white in the photograph! And I've been thinking about the color red since last night's post. Here's a beloved poem/song by Robert Burns.

A Red, Red Rose

O my Luve is like a red, red rose
That’s newly sprung in June;
O my Luve is like the melody
That’s sweetly played in tune.

So fair art thou, my bonnie lass,
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;
I will love 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,
Though it were ten thousand mile.

By Robert Burns
