Because it's Valentine's Day...

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
Sugar is sweet,
And so are you.

Versions of this rhyme are absolutely everywhere today - so have a look at these examples and practise your rhythm and pronunciation!  Typically, every line of the poem has two 'beats' (stressed syllables), while the number of unstressed syllables between will vary.  The second line usually rhymes with the fourth, and there may be additional rhymes, but it's far from compulsory.
