The Force That
like a Red, Red Rose

Rabbie and Dylan

The force that through the green fuse drives the flower

like a red, red rose
that’s newly sprung in June;

that blasts the roots of trees

is like the melodie
that’s sweetly play’d in tune.

The force that drives the water through the rocks

till a’ the seas gang dry:
till a’ the seas gang dry, my dear,

is like the hand that whirls the water in the pool.

Seth Crook, 2014
