Sherlockian Poetry Day!
Today is National Poetry today. I just could not resist the challenge of writing a poem today during my lunch break. It took me about half an hour to do but it was great fun
Ode To The Baskervilles
The Waxen Moon rose above the Moor
The Hound of The Baskervilles howled for more
A vagrant stalked the Land
Seeking to uphold the Law
Dr Watson cries for his friend
Witnessing Seldon meet his grizzly End
Stapleton collects butterflies
But it is Holmes who nets a bigger prize
As the Powers of Evil are vanquished
Peace reigns across the Moors once more
Until a new case comes to the fore knocking on 221B’s door
Taking Holmes and Watson back to the grisly moor
To face The Cornish Horror
On the way home this evening from work my mind was like a racing engine and I just could not resist writing one more poem!
The Landlady And The Tenants Of Baker Street
Mrs Hudson was busy knitting some mittens
For her favourite tenants with whom she was smitten
When burglars dared enter her room and gave her a scare
Two Angels of Justice appeared out of thin air
The famous duo dispatched the blackguards to their lair
With the help of Toby who followed their scent in the air.
Inspector Lestrade arrived on the scene
Receiving high praise for a case in which he never gave chase
But Wiggins put Ferret Face back in his place
Holmes and Watson wearily climbed the hallowed thirteen steps
Back to their lodgings so lovingly kept
By a grateful landlady who let it be known
That there was no place like Home
Without the presence of a Great Heart and Healer of Souls
Two famous sons she called her Own.
I hope that you enjoyed the poems! I don’t know where the poetry comes from. It just kinds of come when I open my trusty Moleskine book which I carry everywhere with me for when I want to write or indeed jot down some Sherlockian poetry! Happy Sherlockian Poetry Day!
