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.
