    Violets are tiny
    Redwoods are vast.
    Our Christmas tree
    Is up at last.
  • Roses are red
    The grinch is green
    There's still no Christmas Tree
    Here to be seen.
  • Roses are red,
    Holly is green,
    Before Christmas Eve,
    No tree will be seen.

    Roses are red,
    Peonies bright,
    We have a bare tree
    Painted in white.

    Roses are red,
    Tinsel is gold,
    This year in Tesco's
    Bare trees are now sold.
  • Roses are red
    Like a shiny new Dodge
    Our tree's in a box
    Out in the garage
  • My tree, likewise,
    Rests not upstairs
    No room for it
    Will try next year.

    Roses are red
    Holly is green
    Our tree is still bare
    Not a light to be seen

    Roses are harmless
    Violets are sweet
    Just saw a cobra
    Glide down the street
  • Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    Happy Christmas to shippies
    Expecially you.
  • No cobras here.
    Too windy. Too cold.
    In fact, we've few snakes,
    Or so I'm told.

    In other news,
    I've seen the doc.
    Bone is growing.
    I'm free to walk.

    I wear a boot cast
    For now. Boo hiss.
    Walking however
    Oh joy. Oh bliss.

    Red is the rose,
    Navy my shoes.
    This really is
    Most excellent news!

    Red are the rosies
    Loud are the horns
    Your harmless posies
    Must have no thorns

    The thorn of a rose
    Can draw blood, that's true;
    But the fang of the serpent
    Would scare even you.

    Yet roses still bloom
    And violets stay blue,
    Lily Pad in her boot cast
    Brings joy to me too.

    Thank you ML
    Your poem so cheery
    Freedom is both
    jolly and weary.

    It's Advent IV
    I'm on my feet
    The snow is falling
    I've fudge and treats


  • Roses are red
    Violets are blue,
    I'd justlike to say
    How clever are you
    Who write ones new

    Red is the rose
    Hairy the hound.
    I like fudge and treats
    So am on my way round.
  • Not just the hound,
    Herders have hair.
    Yes, drop over.
    I've treats to share.
  • Violets are blue
    I enjoy what you do
    Here on the thread
    Where roses are red.
  • Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    Sugar is sweet
    And so are you.

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    Happy Christmas
    To all of you!
  • MiffyMiffy Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Sugar’s not bad
    Come on, it’s Chridtmas
    With treats to be had!
  • MaryLouiseMaryLouise Purgatory Host, Epiphanies Host
    Roses are festive
    Our skies are so blue
    Peach bellinis for later
    With plenty for you!

    A rose gladdens summer
    (my Internet's slow)
    If you Zoom over quickly
    You'll get some gateau!

  • MiffyMiffy Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Christmas not spent
    There are twelve days to Christmas…
    (and I’ve run out of rhyming words) 😐
  • .. And 64 till Lent?

    Red is the rose,
    Blue is the sea.
    Virtual gateau
    Is calorie-free.

    Blue is the violet,
    Brown is the seed.
    Calorie-free
    Is what I need.

    Red is the rose
    Pink is the clover,
    Thanks for the Zoom date:
    I'm on my way over.

    Did someone mention CAKE? :)

    Blue is the violet
    Light is the CAKE
    That's a most worthwhile
    Journey to make!
  • Roses are red
    Blue is the lake
    Please, won't you pass
    Icing on cake?

    Raspberries, red
    Blueberries, blue
    Fresh and tasty
    And low-cal too!

    Off to the beach
    Sunny and warm
    Can't walk too much
    Will still be a balm.

  • Roses are red,
    Violets are blue.
    A happy new year?
    I hope so, too!
  • Violets blue
    Roses red and white,
    Let’s hope 2022
    Will be alright!
  • PigletPiglet All Saints Host, Circus Host
    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue
    I wish you the best
    For 2022.
  • So amusing
    You're poets all.
    It's quiet here
    No party. No ball.

    I wish us well
    No matter where.
    2022
    Be good. Be fair.

    Happy 2022!🥳
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Happy New Year!
    A question now.
    Eat well or no?
    Advice please, now.

    I've chocolates, sweets,
    cookies, and more.
    Must find a closet
    And shut the door.
  • MaryLouiseMaryLouise Purgatory Host, Epiphanies Host
    Roses are redder,
    violets look bereft
    Stayed up until midnight
    To make sure Old Year left.

  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red
    I've made a mistake
    I meant to type "how?"
    Now I want cake!

    ML, good for you!
    You sure it went?
    I was in bed.
    Tired and spent.
  • Roses are red,
    Violets are blue.
    The Old year has gone,
    We're now in the New.

    A piece of Good News,
    Well worth a ditty -
    The Queen has decided
    To knight Prof Chris Whitty!
    :grin:
  • Roses are red
    Pinks are pink (well duh!)
    May 2022
    Be better than you think.
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Roses are red
    Lupins endemic
    I'm awfully worried
    About this pandemic.

  • Roses are red,
    Violets are blue.
    You're not alone -
    I'm worried too!

    Violets are blue,
    Roses are white.
    Boris is King,
    So England's all right...

    Snow falling white
    Up high. Down low.
    Should be a "time".
    Small flakes. Big snow

    Roses are red,
    Crinolines frilly.
    No snow here -
    But decidedly chilly.

    Roses are red,
    Sweethearts are dear.
    What is this *snow*?
    We don't have it here...

  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    White blowing sideways
    Like rain but not
    Everything closed
    Storm chips are bought.
  • Roses are red,
    Violets smell.
    What are *storm chips*?
    O pray - do tell!
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Storm chips we eat,
    As any fule kno,
    When the wind rages
    When roads fill with snow.

    Potato chips
    For most, you see.
    Snacks of all sorts
    Storm chips can be.
  • Roses are red,
    Violets are blue.
    Thanks for the chip tip - can I have some, too?
  • The rose is low
    The rowan high
    They call for snow
    But none is nigh

    No blowing wind
    No snow or rain
    But flooding streams
    Are rising again
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Snow can be plowed
    Water needs pumps
    I'm fine with my lot
    Not down in the dumps.

    The snow, it's too high
    To get out the screen door.
    The garage one works
    Thank goodness for!
  • NenyaNenya All Saints Host, Ecclesiantics & MW Host
    Roses are red.
    Clouds come in wisps.
    What some call "potato chips"
    Others call "crisps".
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Nenya, that's true.
    Our storm's now done.
    I can't go out.
    Snow's deep. No fun.
