The Origin Of Roses Are Red Violets Are Blue Poems

Before we get to the main thing, let’s see where these poems came from.

“Roses are red, violets are blue” has its origin in Sir Edmund Spenser’s hopeless romantic epic poem The Faerie Queene written in the 16th century. It appears in a stanza where he’s describing a man looking at a fairy woman taking a bath:

“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.”

A new, more familiar version can be found in a collection of English nursery rhymes from the 18th century called Gammer Gurton’s Garland.

“The rose is red, the violet’s blue,

The honey’s sweet, and so are you.

Thou are my love and I am thine;

I drew thee to my Valentine:

The lot was cast and then I drew,

And Fortune said it shou’d be you.”

Famously, Victor Hugo included the lines in his masterpiece Les Misérables, sung by the character Fantine.

“Les bleuets sont bleus, les roses sont roses,

Les bleuets sont bleus, j’aime mes amours.”

(“Violets are blue, roses are red,

Violets are blue, I love my loves.”)
