Violets are NOT Blue


I understand roses being red, but not violets being blue. If they were blue, they would be called blues. I realize it kills the rhyme, but violets are purple.

To maintain our intellectual integrity, we simply need to rewrite the poem. This is difficult, since very few words rhyme with “purple,” but integrity is not something you want to sacrifice for expediency. And so, I offer the following.

Roses are red,
Violets are purple,
Sugar is sweet,
And so is Aunt Myrtle.

Roses are red,
Violets are purple,
Water is cold,
Like the Arctic Circle.
