Example Poem

Advice to a Freshman     (Streambed Quintet)

If you come upon a maid
who's unafraid
and has a yearning
for learning,
please don't act too staid.

If perfume arouses you,
and bodice view
portends a measure
of pleasure
it just could be true.

If she pulls you close to kiss
don't be remiss,
she's not awaiting
dull dating,
act, don't reminisce.
