Example Poem

Her Name’s Rose, Watson      (Mystique’s Mini Sonnet)
When Watson studied art
the students sat apart
in half-circle seeing view
of object they should sketch true.
Today in still life’s place
sat a lass dressed in lace
and pink bows each in their place-
taunting smile upon her face.
When Watson studied art
he left Holmes at the start
but as working on a case
a deduction would take place.
One man’s work was titled “Rose”
and he sketched her without clothes.
