->Roses are red,\\
Violets are blue,\\
Sugar is sweet;\\
And so are you.

This is the stereotypical poem. Its origins are unknown, but may, according to Wiki/{{Wikipedia}}, be traced to these lines from Sir Edmund Spenser's ''TheFaerieQueene'':

->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.

"Blew" is an old spelling of "blue". Both roses and violets exist in varieties of many colours. ''Viola sororia'' and ''Viola odorata'' are the bluest violets; red roses are hybrid teas of the genus ''Rosa''.

It has [[DeadHorseTrope often been parodied]].
