Thread: Roses are red

    Roses are red

    I guess everyone knows

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    You are my love
    And I love you

    and probably some variations like the seasonal one,

    Roses are reddish
    violets are blueish
    If it weren't for Christmas
    We would be Jewish.

    But how about making some up?

    Roses are red,
    violets are blue

    Roses are red
    Most plants are green
    Maybe I'll play this
    Whatever you mean.

    Here's a historical one

    Roses are red
    roses are white
    Lancaster and York
    put up a big fight

    Roses are red
    Sometimes they're yellow
    Someone bought me a dozen
    He was a very nice fellow

    Winter:

    roses have thorns
    weeds have thistles
    snowballs fly
    like guided missiles

    My recall of this verse is from an American 60's pop song done by Bobby vinton.

    Roses are red, my love
    Violets are blue
    Sugar is sweet, my love
    But not as sweet as you.
    I was fighting with temptation but I didn't want to win.
    A man like me don't like to see temptation caving in.
    Leonard Cohen

    roses are red
    with the bloodshed of you
    the voices in my head said
    this is what i had to do

    (too dark?)

    maybe something a little lighter...

    roses may be red
    but violets are definitely purple
    i would've liked this thread
    if it didn't send me on such a colorful hurdle

    Roses are red
    Some flowers are violet
    It's a colourful thread
    But some seem to like it.
