Roses are Red ~Give the famous poem a different ring

Updated on February 23, 2011

First the question wasn't asked by me so i take no Credit

bellawritter23: Give the famous poem a different ring..... Roses are red, violets are blue

"Original poem by Sir Edmund Spenser It was upon a Sommers shynie day, When Titan faire his beames did display, In a fresh fountaine, farre from all mens vew, She bath'd her brest, the boyling heat t'allay; She bath'd with roses red, and violets blew, And all the sweetest flowres, that in the forrest grew. Roses are red violets are blue sugar is sweet and so are you.asked by bellawritter23



In theory roses are supposedly red

And so is our little love bed

As on my flesh your little demons have fed

Until lots of blood has been shed

Can you see the hate that fluctuates whenever I say your name?

Can’t you see that even in the dark you have over burned our flame?

And when the violets turn black as love fades

And death claims my cold heart with its blades

Deny it but you know your love ain’t that sweet

Sometimes it knocks us off our feet

And as you sank your fangs into my skin

And I watched everything burn in a spin

And when the cold settles to rip my heart

Will you be merciful as you tear it apart?

And I tensed under your skin against mine so coarse

I will eternally remember those little words of yours

Roses are red violets are blue

sugar is sweet and so are you

All credit concerning the question goes to bellawritter23, incase u want to share u can answer the question yourself :D 

Enjoy and thanks again to bellawritter23

      roses are red,

      violets are purple,

      and you are sweet

      as maple surple.
