  • Roses are red,
    You all are sweet--
    Bouqets of violets
    Fall at your feet.
  • My roses are wilty
    shabby and dour
    Was riding my bike
    Was hit by a car

    At least the roses
    are not on my coffin
    The driver's suspended
    and he ain't laughin
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Roses are red,
    (Perhaps not the "hip")
    For friendly support
    Just call on the Ship!
  • Roses are red
    So sorry No Propet
    When you're on your bike
    Don't want to come off it.
  • Blood is red
    None of mine spilled
    Right side has pain
    I wasn't killed

    To many drivers
    A bike is a toy
    To me it is transport
    And mostly it's joy

    (I'm alright, more rumpled in spirit than body.)
  • Roses are red
    in May and June
    NP NP,
    Get better soon.
  • I like roses in circus
    could have taken't to hell
    but it is better a-laughing
    than mad crying spells

    (thanks for the kind wishes)
  • Our red-haired Anne says,
    "Rumpled in spirit"
    Bike-car collision?
    Sorry to hear it.

    Her braids would fall out
    If she were here now
    We've lost lots of trees
    And even our pow'r!

    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue
    Sorry that Dorian
    Has messed with you too.

    [It didn't mess too badly with us - just a bit of water ingress as we got about 70mm of rain on Saturday]
  • balaambalaam Shipmate
    Roses are Red,
    but can become wilty.
    If Dorian comes here
    I'll stay under my quilt-y*

    ---
    *poetic licence, or anything to get a rhyme.
  • Roses are red
    My quilt is too
    Thousands need pow'r
    Despite the crews.

    They toil for hours
    With chainsaws alight
    They work round the clock
    Yes, even at night.

    I came here to write one for Piglet but Nenya has expressed it perfectly. <votive>
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Lilies are perfumed
    And whiter than snow.
    This thread makes me smile
    When I'm feeling low.
  • RublevRublev Shipmate
    Roses are red,
    Snowdrops are white.
    A threadful of verses makes
    A garden of delight.
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red
    The scent so fine
    Fish is the smell
    On this dog of mine.

    The beach is so fair
    We go there each day
    But rolling in fish
    Causes dismay.
  • Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    We got a foot of snow
    How about you?

    Cranberries are red
    Pumpkin pie is orange
    Our turkey was yummy
    How about your's?

    (Thanksgiving day in Canada 14 Oct)
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Roses aren't murky,
    My name isn't Tanya,
    I didn't have turkey,
    But plumped for lasagne.

    This verse was brought to you by the Department of Desperate Rhyming.

    A foot of sn*w??? Crikey! It was 17° here yesterday.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Red is the rose,
    Yellow the hay;
    I wish we had Thanksgiving
    In the UK.

    Roses were red
    It seems they've all legged it
    Maybe we should "thanks give"
    For the day we ditch Brexit

    [And yes I am a sad person who had to look up rhymes for Brexit]
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Cranberries too.
    Turkey and dressing
    Was on our menu.

    A rose may be red
    But ammonium wrecks it
    To wreck a Great Britain
    Just add one Brexit
  • Roses are red
    I have two questions for you
    Is a hotdog a sandwich?
    Is milk and cereal soup?
  • Roses are red
    But keep it in mind
    A hot dog's a taco
    Soup ain't been defined.
  • Roses are red
    I can tell you with glee
    Soup requires boiling
    Sez the OED
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Rosehips taste great
    Cereal soup?
    Not a chance, mate.
  • Roses are red
    A third question, oops
    at what in the tummy
    does food become poop

    (hang out with the under 10 year old crowd and questions like this may occur)
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Poop is brown too
    For canines, at least
    Six hours makes poo!

    Violets are blue
    Under tens? Crude.
    Those older though,
    Are often rude.
  • Roses are red
    Says a rhyme for the ages
    Poop isn't sudden
    It happens in stages
  • Roses are red
    they don't smell like farts
    Amazing to me
    Is the Bristol Stool Chart

    (that it exists)

    [facetious hostly oink]

    Some of us have to check those links ... :flushed:
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red.
    Piglets are pink.
    "Poo" rhymes so well.
    Be good! Wink. Wink.
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Violets are blue,
    Why has this thread
    Turned to matters of poo?
  • Roses are red
    If that makes you happy
    Please write a new poem
    On a subject less crappy.
  • In answer to Nenya's question above...

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue.
    Piglet's a friend
    Of Winnie the Poo(h).
  • EnochEnoch Shipmate
    Roses are red,
    This thought might appall,
    But poo is found,
    At the bottom of all.
  • Schroedingers CatSchroedingers Cat Shipmate, Waving not Drowning Host
    Roses are Red,
    Violets are Blue
    I hope I am feeling
    worse than you.

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue.
    The same could be said
    Of Kanga and Roo.

    Violets are small
    Roses are bigger.
    Let's not forget
    Rabbit and Tigger.
  • Roses are red
    And so are carnations
    Let's not forget Rabbit's
    Friends and relations

    In the wind they will bend.

  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Do you all know
    That roses are red
    And Winnie is short
    For Winnipeg?
  • Roses are red
    Violets are blue.
    Winnie was named
    After a bear at London Zoo.
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Winnie was black
    A Canadian bear
    Oh yes, look at that.
  • Floppy hats are red,
    Duffle coats blue.

    Darkest Peru.

    Violets blue
    Grow in a clump.
    Remember also
    The Heffalump.

    Roses are red,
    Their petals may fall
    How could we forget
    about dear, wise old WOL?
  • NenyaNenya Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Carrots grow wonky
    Keep in mind also
    Eeyore the donkey.
