    Roses are red
    Violets sweet.
    I'm feeling refreshed
    Having been on retreat.
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    A rest is good
    Lucky for you!
  • SusanDorisSusanDoris Shipmate
    If you want to anagram
    Roses are red
    It’s like an exam
    It’ll do in your head!!



    sieve out bell
    From violets are blue
    It's senseless, but well
    It's easier too!
  • SusanDorisSusanDoris Shipmate
    Two letters forgotten
    From violets are blue
    But they just were not an
    Important iss - ue

    Red is the rose
    Green is the tree
    SusanDoris has
    Completely lost me.
  • CathscatsCathscats Shipmate
    Roses were red
    Their death a great sorrow
    A new red rose tree
    I'm planting tomorrow!
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Don't think me a rebel
    But take "ue" from "are blue"
    And you get "violets arebl"
  • jrwjrw Shipmate
    Violets are blue
    Roses are red
    Could've got 'em cheaper
    off dodgy old Fred.

    Roses are red,
    Strawberries too.
    It's Wimbledon fortnight,
    So let's have a few.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Slugs are a menace.
    I can't say I'm very much
    Into tennis.

    Blue is the violet
    Purple the plum,
    Strawberries though -
    Yes, give me some!
  • SusanDorisSusanDoris Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Raspberries too
    No stalks to shed
    I'll have more than a few

    (P.S. Saturday DT cryptic crosswords often need anagrams! :) )

    All cryptic crosswords need an anagram or three. :smile:

    We download the crosswords from the Grauniad online, as they're free. The DT and the Times charge for membership - stuff that for a lark! Anyway, I think the Grauniad ones are better - they're more devious! :mrgreen:

    Red is the rose
    Green is the leaf
    Raspberry seeds
    Get lodged in my teeth.
  • balaambalaam Shipmate
    Red is the rose,
    Young the apprentice,
    Get rid of those seeds
    By floss, or a dentist.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Red is the rose
    Golden the wheat
    Brits are moaning
    About the heat.

    Blue is the violet
    Sparkling the gem
    It's more fun than moaning
    About the PM.
  • Roses are red
    out in the rain
    leaders of 2 countries
    share just one brain

    It's not a big brain
    nor terrifically smart
    It's the sort of brain
    that's quite prone to farts

    No Prophet, I'm going to need brain bleach for that one ... :astonished:
  • I'll send you some (left over from the last vision of, er, nevermind)
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Thanks, LC! ;)
  • MiffyMiffy Shipmate
    Umm...

    Go on why don’t you?

    It's been a month since
    The last post on this thread.
  • Violets are violet,
    Roses are red,
    That's cause I'm feeling
    A little bit dead.
  • jrwjrw Shipmate
    Violets are blue
    Roses are red
    Poetry active
    on more than one thread.
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue,
    Poetry enhances
    Our Biblical view.
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    Roses are red as
    The Rose of Sharon,
    She was part of
    Solomon's Harem.

    Roses are red,
    Lilies are white,
    Gabriel gave Mary
    A terrible fright.

    The blossom was pink
    On the Tree of Life,
    Eve picked the flower,
    No more strife!
  • Roses are red
    Among the flowers arranged
    While the thread has been quiet
    The world hasn't changed
  • Coxcombs are red
    Roses are bloomy
    Try to be upbeat
    Not so dang gloomy
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    Ruth in the cornfields
    gleaning the barley,
    Found a husband
    and then lived securely.
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue.
    The desert shall blossom,
    If Isaiah is true.

    Violets are blue,
    Roses are red.
    Men flourish like grass,
    And then they are dead.

    Lilies are white,
    They toil not nor spin,
    Solomon's glory,
    Just couldn't win.
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    The garden was dark,
    The tomb was empty.
    Mary met Jesus,
    It surprised her plenty.
  • Rublev has posted
    many short verses
    There's no competition
    there's clearly no versus
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue.
    Theology is fun,
    And so are you!
  • Violets are blue
    And so are some curses
    My favorite album
    By Pearl Jam is Vs.
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    Roses are red,
    Some psalms are blue.
    But cursing psalms
    Are an overdo.
  • Some psalms are purple
    That I have read
    Like dashing on rocks
    Somebody's kid's head
  • Roses are red
    Carnations are too
    The blood on my head
    Congeals just like glue
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    Psalms in green pastures
    Are my cup of tea.
    Beside the still waters,
    My God and me.
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    Psalms by the rivers,
    Who do we see?
    The exiles of Babylon,
    Their harps in the tree.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red
    A new day is dawning
    How lovely to see
    These poems this morning.
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    Wisdom Literature:
    What does it mean?
    God is on Trial -
    Job is aggrieved!
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    The gospel of Mark
    presents Christ the Messiah
    as a ransom for many
    and a servant - pariah.

    But the gospel of John
    presents Jesus the Christ,
    through the Signs of His glory,
    as the grace that sufficed.
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    The gospel of Matthew
    for the Jewish nation,
    describes OT prophecy
    fulfilled by quotation.

    But the gospel of Luke
    with Gentiles in mind,
    has a storytelling Saviour
    who is universally kind.
  • Booksies are read
    Words may be pretty
    But parts of the bible
    Are really quite sh*tty
  • Roses are red
    Weeds epidemic
    Some poetry threads
    Are too academic
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    The martyrs attest
    to the Rule of Faith,
    Polycarp kissed
    Ignatius' chains.

    Truth is determined
    by its longevity,
    But do not deny
    the Spirit's creativity.

    As a female Christian
    I'm conflicted on Paul -
    his Letters to Timothy
    make me feel small.

    A better hermeneutic
    is what we seek:
    Both 'for the Jews
    and for the Greeks.'
  • Winds and destruction
    All through the Bible
    A hurricane here
    Now then, who's liable?
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    Go back to Job
    where God is on trial:
    God made the world -
    but the weather is vile!

    Roses are red
    Jammy Dodgers are jammy.
    I'm sorry that things
    Are hard for you, Lamby.

    Roses are pinky
    and smell of poo
    When life is stinky
    We are here for you.

    Roses are red
    Dead leaves are crackly,
    SC has expressed
    My feelings exactly.
