How does one make a poem look like the color of beets?

If I knew, I'd be doing it.  However, for inspiration I cook beets often, especially those golden ones and the incomparable color of Chiogga.  Named for an island off of Venice, by the way.  Just like the Italians to have the inside skinny on food.

    Was it time to review the case from a distance
    as one would observe a sailboat from the shore?
    After all, what had really happened
    since the group began their inquiries?

    The merchant had left for parts unknown,
    his daughter played house at the family estate,
    the constable kept a record book of expenses,
    and the aunt's letter was missing to this day.
