Read-a-thon mini challenge: Haiku

Dewey has challenged those of us still awake to write a limerick or haiku about one of the books we've read during the read-a-thon.

Here's my poor attempt at a haiku defining a new word I learned from The Uncommon Reader (which has, fortuitously, five syllables).

Literary assistant
One who copies words

And here's one inspired by My Lady of Cleves. I know it's bad, but I can't resist.

The daughter of Cleves
Divorced, but not beheaded,
Outlived fat Henry.

Yes, a five syllable word, perfect! I hope you're holding up ok this late in the day.
