Ross Are Red, Violets Are Blue: Shakespeare, Much Ado


24 Festive Tasks: Door 3 – Melbourne Cup Day, Task 2:

Write your own “Roses are Red, Violets are Blue” poem for one of your favorite or most hated books of all time.


Roses are red, violets are blue;
Shakespeare nailed it without Much Ado.

(Well, OK, this is more of a tribute to all of the Bard’s works, not just one, but among his comedies, Much Ado About Nothing really has emerged as my firm favorite in the past 20 years or so.)
