Written for: dVerse Poets Pub – Meeting The Bar: The Acrostic (posted by Frank)
To write an acrostic poem, take a word or phrase and use each letter as the first letter of each line in the poem. One should be able to read that word or phrase vertically down the left side of the poem. There are no other constraints. Each line can be metrical or free verse or even a prose poem paragraph.
Come one, come all!
On this boardwalk you will
Notice crowds of people on the beach
Eagerly awaiting a spectacular sunset.
Yells and shrieks of Cyclone riders shatter the air
In an arena of rides, hawkers, and merry-go-round music.
Sit next door at a ball game.
Listen to announcers call each play,
And watch for night to fall.
No where else will you see streaming purple lights on a Parachute Jump.
Drink a beer, eat a hot dog, and listen to the crack of a bat.
