“I’d Pluck a Fair Rose” ~ Sound of My Day

It’s not an old, classic Cornish folk song but it sounds like one and I absolutely adore the longing the words convey.

“I’d Pluck a Fair Rose”

Eleanor Tomlinson, Poldark, 2016

Songwriter: Michael O’Connor, Winston Graham

I’d a pluck a fair rose for my love
I’d a pluck a red rose blowin’
Love’s in my heart, I’m tryin’ so to prove
What you heart’s knowin’

I’d a pluck a finger on a thorn
I’d a pluck a finger bleedin’
Red is my heart, wounded and forlorn
And your heart needin’

I’d a hold a finger to my tongue
I’d a hold a finger waitin’
My heart is sore, until it joins in song
With your heart matin’
