How to Write an Acrostic Poem
I confess, I did not eat a lot of alphabet soup as a kid. But I did eat my fair share of Alpha Bits cereal, which is nearly the same thing, not counting the fact that soup and milk are no more alike than chicken and cows.
Speaking of which, no chickens or cows were harmed in the creation of this infographic, except perhaps where poultry pride is concerned.
I digress. Whatever your favorite word-spelling platform may be — whether soup or cereal, crossword puzzle or word-find, an acrostic poem is bound to be full of letter-loving fun. So grab a sheet of paper, pick an interesting word, try out our new infographic, and learn how to write an acrostic poem.

I just penned this as an Acrostic written by a protagonist in my evolving novel-
Each memory in Mother’s shadow
Now truly gone
Ending what never commenced.
Voices, warm behind forbidden doors.
I, the one dwelling in cold silence.
Echoes of Daddy’s song – far away and calling
Visit my frantic dreams, even now –
Even now in my fading years –
