So, I figured that we’d start the day with an authentic Irish Coffee and a poem from Robbie Burns while we drink! (I know, the Irish and the Scottish in the same post?? WHAT AM I THINKING!!) Hopefully, no one gets TOO angry about it!

And enjoy ‘A Red, Red Rose’ by Robert Burns

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.
