    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.

    the color of the purple fades black
    on the tomb of a man named Jack
    on the stone it was wrote,

    "to the eyes of this, note,

    'though Roses are red,
    and violets are blue,
    the heart of this pyre,
    is smelling' "

    Thought I'd add a little dark ring to it...hope you don't mind.

    Roses were red
    and violets were blue
    but flowers unwatered
    are now dead flowers too!

    Forever you're my favorite obsession
    Your love lingers, like the scent of pouring rain
    Disdain- is what I feel as the pain of missing you intrudes
    My short-sighted blues...As I hear the news...subdues

    He's coming back...and just then, I think of the poem that everyone knows- behold.

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    I'm loving my lover
    For he loves me too

    roses are read
    on their pages it's said:
    seize the day
    in memory of the dead

    no sooner had sprung
    violets from earth anew
    then when the wind came
    away violets blew

    The original seems like a difficult to copy piece of poetry. If roses are red and the violets are blue can the grass be called greener on the other side of truth. Perhaps roses are yellow or maybe green, and the violets are purple, slightly richer than black. If not searching for truth, rather staging a whim that colour is a track on a straight A ride. Then roses are scented and violets are so, that they may be called just that. So to speak of the sugar regarding the post, to the hub question we regard of the sweetest report, that old poems do lend a tune to the rhyme, in a breezy climate the ringing of chimes.

    Roses are Red....
    Violets are Blue....
    Where ever you may go...
    I will follow you....
    Lead my heart,
    To a distant place,
    That's okay,
    Don't feel misplaced...
    My love for you,
    Grows stronger each day,
    I'll follow you,
    Just lead the way....

    If color is blind,
    Remains unassigned,
    Than the color of flowers
    Need not be defined.

    Roses are gray,
    Violets are white,
    Tulips are fighting
    For green out of spite.

    We find their box.
    We lock them in.
    Observing them,
    We try again:

    Roses are red,
    Violets are blue.
    Which one is better?
    Which one will do?

    No truer is a rose but red
    No bluer than the violet bled
    My tears upon it's petals fall
    liquid prisms
    hatred spew
    crumpled petals
    losing you...........

    Found this in a book...can't remember which one

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    You may not know it
    But I love you too

    Another one:

    Roses are red
    Violets are blue
    Through bad times and good
    I'm glad I have you

    When I was a child my grandmother ...who was very crazy would say:

    roses are red
    violets are blue
    the pig pen stinks
    and so do you

    as a kid I thought this was the funniest thing

    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

    Roses are red

    violets are blue...

    I could write something different

    but I’m not going to

    for the joy of a rhyme

    as timeless as this

    is the way that it leads

    always to a kiss

    when the red of the rose

    darkens violet’s blue

    and our love becomes bathed

    in a deep purple hue

    Roses are red; violets are blue,
    But their beauty pales before such as you-
    No matter how sweet is sugar's taste,
    It's the taste of your lips I truly crave.
    And even though flowers grow and die,
    My feelings for you shall still burn bright.
    So like the rose, open now to me;
    For even as it binds, love sets us free.

    Roses are red violets are blue
    I am writing a hub
    Because I like to earn revenue..

    But roses are red violets blue
    Traffic decreases
    because the season is low

    Though I still hope that roses are red violets are blue
    in the coming days earnings will grow.

    And for now roses are red, violets are blue
    I answer your question that's all I can do
