    Red is the rose;
    Yellow, papyrus.
    We're staying at home
    Because of the virus.
  • Rosé's the wine
    not because I like it
    we ran out of better
    because of the virus
  • NenyaNenya All Saints Host, Ecclesiantics & MW Host
    Red roses glowing,
    Violets duller,
    When it comes to wine
    I'm not fussed about colour.
  • MiffyMiffy Shipmate
    Roses and violets
    in glorious profusion,
    We need an audience
    for Ship’s Eurovision
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Rosé is pink
    Merlot is redder
    The first is too sweet
    The second is better
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red.
    No wine. No gin.
    Trip to Walmart
    Has done me in.
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Red is the rose
    Brown is the toast
    Just back from Walmart?
    You need wine the most.

    Violets are red
    Roses are blue
    You’d just love to join in
    You know that you do!

  • NenyaNenya All Saints Host, Ecclesiantics & MW Host
    Blue is the violet
    Green is the tree
    It all looks a bit
    Complicated for me.
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate

    Violets pretty.
    I hope you like
    My little ditty.

    Your roses and violets
    Could win the cup.
    Fly over to Heaven,
    Still time to sign up!

    Roses are red
    Violets are spent.
    I think from this thread
    I’d best be absent.

    (Before a host appears to give me the boot)

  • Red is the wine
    that we got delivered
    We're eyeing it for breakfast
    with pancakes and bacon
  • CathscatsCathscats Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Your wine is red too
    With pancakes and bacon?
    I’m glad I’m not you!
  • ZacchaeusZacchaeus Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    I am totally fed up
    How about you?
  • MiffyMiffy Shipmate
    Violets are blue
    Roses are twinned [desperate attempt to find a rhyme]
    The attractions of lockdown
    Are wearing thin
  • mousethiefmousethief Shipmate
    Roses are loved
    Dandelions hated
    I'd rather be locked down
    Than intubated.
  • MiffyMiffy Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Daffodils yellow
    Wales euro ditty*
    Was stunningly mellow

    *See Heaven
  • MiffyMiffy Shipmate
    Ahem!

    Les Roses sont rouges
    Mauves les lilas
    L’Euro chanson Francais va commencer
    Regardez-le, la*

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    The French Euro song is about to begin
    Watch it over in Heaven.
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Very impressive, Miffy!

    <notworthy>
  • Roses are red

    Cumming must go
    and the rest of them too.

    I wondered how long it would take for DC to feature in a verse ... :mrgreen:

  • SusanDorisSusanDoris Shipmate
    Roses are red,
    Raspberries too,
    Age Concern said,
    We'll get some for you.

    With shopping done for me today.
  • NenyaNenya All Saints Host, Ecclesiantics & MW Host
    Blue is the violet
    Dusty the heath.
    Raspberry seeds
    Get lodged in the teeth.
  • Roses are red
    Klingons are cool
    Prune juice and ear cheese
    Will make them all drool

    (Also in Eurovision, Heaven)

    Roses are red
    Golden Is honey
    I like it set
    I can't manage runny!
    (Hoping it sets in fridge!)
  • Roses are red
    That's hardly a shock
    I hope that your honey
    Don't turn into rock

    Roses are red
    So it's always seemed
    If honey's too runny
    Have you tried it creamed?
  • Roses are red
    Honey's less runny
    I'll spread some on bread
    Hope it tastes yummy!
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host

    I eat my peas with honey
    I've done it all my life
    It makes the peas taste funny
    But it keeps them on the knife.

  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Fresh bread have I
    Spread with butter
    No honey, jam,
    or fluffernutter.
  • CathscatsCathscats Shipmate
    Roses are grown
    Fluffernutter unknown
    Sounds like a peanut
    That's found 'neath the throne
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    No thrones needed
    For fluffernutter -
    white bread, marshmallow,
    and peanut butter.
  • NenyaNenya All Saints Host, Ecclesiantics & MW Host
    Blue is the violet,
    Golden the grain.
    My garden is glad of
    This much-needed rain.
  • NenyaNenya All Saints Host, Ecclesiantics & MW Host
    Blue is the violet
    Golden the crown,
    It's too much too soon
    On the ease of lockdown.
  • NenyaNenya All Saints Host, Ecclesiantics & MW Host
    Blue is the violet,
    Navy my shoes.
    I'm crying out for
    Some really good news.
  • Bacon for breakfast
    which means a good day
    When I stick to the local
    the news is okay
  • NenyaNenya All Saints Host, Ecclesiantics & MW Host
    You're probably right,
    So to keep from heartache
    I'll simply think about
    Chocolate cake.

  • Roses are red
    pizza is cooking
    I feel pretty good
    but am not good looking
  • Blue s the violet
    Azure my mood
    One way to change that
    Is eat too much food.

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue,
    I have to confess
    I've been doing that too.

    Red is the rose
    Green is the vine
    What also helps
    Is plenty of wine.
  • Flowers are red
    Cows, they have horns
    I bought me a rose
    And give you the thorns
  • NenyaNenya All Saints Host, Ecclesiantics & MW Host
    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    England is heading
    For Lockdown Take Two.
  • Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    If you've voted him in again
    I'm coming for you.
  • MiffyMiffy Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    If you've voted him in again
    I'm coming for you.

    Amen to that!

    Roses are red
    Tangerines orange
    Oh bother - I've just remembered "orange" is the only word in English that doesn't have any rhymes ... :mrgreen:

    Roses are red
    Violets are purple
    Orange doesn't rhyme
    But neither does ...
  • Unbeknownst to anxious angels,
    daren't we elbow empty sandwiches
    (which I think, except for the "to" and "we" has words all with no rhymes)
    Would orange go with "door hinge"? or is that cheating?

    (I did keep it to 4 lines, but it's free verse)
  • Orange and door hinge
    May rhyme, one suspects
    But only in aitchless
    Dialects
