    Gardenias are pale,
    White as the chalk.
    You don't have to fix me,
    I just need to talk.
  • Violets are cheap
    Roses are dear
    The last time we talked
    You talked off my ear
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    Sometimes they're yellow.
    Oh what I'd give
    For a really cute fellow!

    Roses come in various colours
    Violets are normally violet, in various shades.
    I don't get out much.
  • Roses are red

    Word counts and rhyming
    Are up to you.

    The rose is red
    The fountains glisten
    I wondered why
    You never listen.
  • Roses are red
    violets are not
    I listened for years
    You never said squat
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Violets are dandy
    And you wonder why
    I'm never randy.

    You win.
    Honestly.
    This at least approaches poetry.

    (Yeah, I know it's a game, and not a competition, and very entertaining it is, too.)

    Violets are dappled
    Roses are plain
    That's why I schtup
    Your sister Jane
  • Roses are red
    Or yellow or white
    Or cream, or peach
    Or pink pale or bright

    Roses are thorny
    Or bushy or tall
    Massed in groups
    Or trained up a wall

    Roses in bud
    Or cabbagey full
    Scented or scentless
    There is no rule

    Everyone likes
    A different rose
    You may be an arse
    But you're the arse that I chose.

    Roses are red
    And bushy and thorny.
    You have a way
    Of making me h*rny.

    Red is the rose
    Blue is the bugle
    I've learned a new word
    With the help of Google.

    You need to take a course in Yiddish.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    (I hoped it meant
    You'd only kissed her.
    Has no one told you
    About my sister...?)
  • (I learned the news
    from Bob your brother.
    I don't mean that sister.
    I mean the other.)
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses have thorns
    Be careful when plucking.
    We've only one sister
    So who are you seeing?
  • Violets are blue
    Roses are red,
    My favourite flower
    is strong flour for bread

    (not mine, pinched from a lad who gets really bad hay fever; his favourite gift is a bag of flour with the poem)
  • balaambalaam Shipmate
    For @Curiosity killed

    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue,
    I get hay fever,
    A, a, a, achoo.
  • Roses are read
    Pomegranates pink.
    I love you less
    The more that you drink.
  • Schroedingers CatSchroedingers Cat Shipmate, Waving not Drowning Host
    @anoesis - aw thank you. :blush:

    Roses are cheap
    If you buy by the dozen
    Perhaps I think maybe
    I was dating your cousin
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red

    I'd get to a doctor
    If I were you.
  • The roses are pruned
    The violets are snipped
    I went to the doctor
    And got me a script
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are gorgeous
    Violets divine.
    Let's just hope
    It was caught in time.

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue.
    Not that I'm saying
    I care about you.
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    Hazel's a witch.
    That's a nasty rash -
    I'll bet it does itch!

    Roses I'll speak of
    And violets I'll mention
    You're only staying
    Because of my pension

    Roses are sharp
    Tulips are gone
    Billy Jean is just a girl
    Who thinks that I am the one.

    Red is the rose
    Pink is the lotus.
    I left six months ago.
    You didn't notice.

    Flowers are bloomin',
    Insects are buzzin',
    No doubt you were too busy
    "Dating" my cousin.
  • Roses are blush
    Lilies are pall
    There's nothing I'd rather
    Part withal
  • Schroedingers CatSchroedingers Cat Shipmate, Waving not Drowning Host
    Roses, violets,
    other flowers too
    Will all last longer
    than my time with you.
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    Violets are grand.
    I never took you for more
    Than a one-night stand.
  • Schroedingers CatSchroedingers Cat Shipmate, Waving not Drowning Host
    Roses are yellow
    Daffs are the same
    You said you loved me!
    Just before we both came

    Roses are red,
    Lichen prosaic.
    Why have you gone
    All obscure and archaic?

    Roses are pretty
    When planted in beds,
    How've you been feeling
    Since starting the meds?
  • Roses are lovely
    And violets sublime
    You taught me to scrabble
    In search of a rhyme

    Roses are lovely
    Meds are great too
    I'm feeling much better
    Now I'm without you
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Red is the rose
    White is the heather
    Happy to know
    You're not under the weather.

    Red is the rose
    And the bonsai restrictive.
    Good luck with the meds,
    I believe they're addictive.
  • Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    I'm done with the meds
    Like I'm done with you
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red
    And get watered by rain.
    Done with the meds?
    Well, that would explain!

    ‘A rose by any other name’?
    ‘Snotwort’ really not the same.

    I can't see colors,

    (Are we really so sure that cats and dogs can't see colors?)
  • balaambalaam Shipmate
    (They at least lack red cones, so have subdued colour vision)
  • Rose has the gleet
    Violet the clap
    Antibiotics are the treatment
    The doc gave to the lot
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    Or so they say.
    I'm just a dog
    So I only see grey.
  • balaambalaam Shipmate
    Roses are brown,
    Violets are blue
    Dogs see colour
    But not the same as you.
  • HuiaHuia Shipmate
    Roses are red,
    Purple the heather,
    I thought you would love me,
    Forever and ever. :C

    Roses are red,
    Buttercups yellow.
    Love you . . . YOU?
    Poor deluded fellow!

    [not personal, you understand]
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Creepers connected.
    What fun to see
    This thread resurrected.
  • Schroedingers CatSchroedingers Cat Shipmate, Waving not Drowning Host
    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue.
    I had a great wank
    thinking of you.
  • Amanda B ReckondwythAmanda B Reckondwyth Mystery Worship Editor
    Roses are red,
    Thistles are icky.
    I hope your hands
    Aren't all sticky.
