    Frazzled to a crisp
    In the fierce summer sun.
    Behind shutters we're wilting;
    drought's also no fun.
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Once again, ML,
    Your plums are here
    I'm tasting sun
    From over there.

    I'm rereading this thread
    To cheer myself up.

    @Nenya sounds blue
    Here’s a virtual hug
    From me to you.
  • NenyaNenya All Saints Host, Ecclesiantics & MW Host
    Blue is the violet
    Green is the bug.
    I do appreciate
    That virtual hug.

  • NenyaNenya All Saints Host, Ecclesiantics & MW Host
    Roses are red
    Snowdrops are white;
    They're out in my garden -
    A heart-warming sight.

    (The snowdrops are out, that is. Not the roses.)

    Roses are red
    Out there somewhere.
    Six feet of snow.
    My sight's impaired.

    Roses are green?
    I really don't mind
    But is there a chance
    You may be colour-blind?
  • Roses are red
    that's back to what's right
    There are plenty of things
    wrong with my sight.
  • Red roses are hardest
    For me to see
    Violets blue though
    Are just right for me!

    Grass is green
    Oranges are orange
    London buses are red
    Squirrels are grey
    Cats come in lots of different colours
    So do dogs
  • MaryLouiseMaryLouise Purgatory Host, Epiphanies Host
    Roses might not be red
    or skies always blue
    abandon that rhyme scheme
    spike it up green, orange, nut-brown, zebra, brindle or zoo!
  • Roses are red
    Half price today
    We're buried in snow
    With more on the way
  • Roses are red

    The ficus is green
    it stands by the door
    There were plums in the fridge
    But not anymore.
  • AravisAravis Shipmate
    Violets are purple
    Roses are white
    And I’m staying in
    On this dark windy night
  • It's windy here too
    Though we're far apart.
    I hope you fare well
    And the trees all stay up!
  • Roses for Ned
    Violets for Cindy
    It's dark here right now
    But nor rainy nor windy.
  • AravisAravis Shipmate
    Warnings were read
    Storm winds blew
    We all kept safe
    I hope you did too
  • NenyaNenya All Saints Host, Ecclesiantics & MW Host
    Violets are shy

    But it's still very blowy.
  • NenyaNenya All Saints Host, Ecclesiantics & MW Host
    Red is the rose
    Feathered the hen
    I've got a coffee date
    With Mr Nen.

    Blue is the violet
    Golden the hay
    We've been married for
    Thirty-six years today. :smile:

    And gleam in the punnet.

    Tulips are red,
    Forget-me-nots blue,
    The ones I’ve just drawn
    Look like elephants too.
  • Lily PadLily Pad Shipmate
    Elephants, grey.
    So big. So cute.
    Forget-me-nots?
    I'm confused. Mute.

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue.
    Wouldn't they look more
    Like elephant poo?

    Blue is the violet
    White is the May.
    I hope all involved
    Have a good Mothers' Day.
  • SpikeSpike Admin Emeritus
