O my Luve is like a red, red rose

That’s sweetly played in tune.

What is a ‘bonnie lass’? I’m assuming it means like a female, a beautiful one at that, but i’d like an opinion from the perspective of another student.

“Till a’ the seas gang dry”? Does this mean “until the sea runs dry”? I’m understanding that the author may have written this in shakespearian language or scottish.

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.

This could be a bit of a reach, but what if this whole poem is in the perspective of a man who’s in love with a woman who doesn’t love him back, so he resorts to stalking her. He watches her from a specific spot every day, and this could be him saying that he’ll see her when she returns.
