Acrostic Poetry Challenge.

by Harry


How about entering a poetry challenge.

I would like everyone to try and write an Acrostic poem.

An acrostic poem is a poem that has a word down the side.

The poem has to be about the word that you have chosen.

So get your thinking caps on and let us all read your entries. 

There are no wonderful prizes, just the taking part in the challenge.

Poets who are not authors may leave their poem in “submit a poem here”, above.

Acrostic Poem: Oh Christmas

by Martin Shone

Oh Celestial Christmas where have you gone?
I remember it like a dream.

Oh Heavenly Christmas from days of old
when presents were never seen.

Oh Righteous Christmas what’s happened to you?
In a world where everything gleams.

Oh Illustrious Christmas you’re here too soon
you make me want to scream.

Oh Splendid Christmas why are you so wearisome?
Must buy must buy I want please.

Oh Twinkling Christmas so bright and so cheery
dulled by shopkeeper’s fees.

Oh Magical Christmas, who has taken your life?
Your spirit ignored like dead trees.

Oh Angelic Christmas we waited with patience
but now we anticipate with greed.

Oh Stoical Christmas when will you return?
To a long-lost time of my dreams.

An old one from my poetry site, but it seems to fit the competition better than my other one.
