The Song of Songs compares love to “a rose of Sharon, a lily of the valleys. Like a Lily among thorns…”
Shakespeare compares his love to a summer’s day, declaring, “Thou art more more lovely and temperate.”
Robby Burns declares his love to be “like a red, red rose that’s newly sprung in June…like the melody that’s sweetly sung in tune.”
This week Robby Williams married and is reported to have compared his love to “a Swiss Army penknife because she can do everything.”
Its nice to know romance isn’t dead, though troubling to see her lingering on life support.
