    My Red Roses
    - in response to “O My Love’s Like a Red, Red Rose”
    by Robert Burns
    and “Quisqueya la Bella”
    by Rafael Hernández Marín

    Oh my love’s like a red red rose
    that blooms in the gardens of old:
    heirloom rose thrives in eternal sun
    for flavors both subtle and bold.

    From quail and rose petals a lovers’ dish
    from the spirit of the Borderlands’ prime
    spring fire from the heart and sighs from the lips
    cardinal-red of desire sublime.

    Oh my love’s like a melody
    that’s sung to the beat of a drum:
    laments to call the beloved back
    that soar through the land I have won.

    Bathed by the many seas of foam
    white-plumed bird on the beach asleep
    my love runs like the sands of time
    finds the precious pearl from the deep.

    The only star in the firmament
    now offers his light once more:
    roses white-plumed birds and pearls
    shed their brilliance upon the shore.

    These seas will never run dry mi vida
    and the wind will carry my refrain.
    To the beautiful island I shall return
    and the rocks with the sun shall remain.
