Roses are red
Violets are blue
Except (of course)
That isn’t true

Because a rose by any other name
Might smell as sweet
But a rose by any other colour
Would still be a rose
And a rose can be many colours
Though the colour known as ‘rose’
Is a kind of pink

And violets are really not blue
The clue is in the name
Because a violet by any other name
Would still be the colour violet
Which is really more purple
Than blue

  1. Very nice, James. That’s a very touching, and surprisingly factually accurate, piece of poetry for Valentine’s Day. Sadly, it was just a touch too long or I’d have added it to the card I left with the chocolates for my wife.
