Acrostic Poems for Children, Teachers, and other Poets   

Lemur


Acrostic:  a poem in which

special letters spell another word.

Panthers growl,
Orioles sing,

Eagles soar,

Monkeys swing.

See? 

Most often,
the special letters 
come at the beginning of each line.

But 
they may be placed 
elsewhere, too.

Alphabet poems 
are also a special type of acrostic,
called abecdearian acrostics.

Devoted, 
O

Guard. 

back-end
hello-- 

wagging.

Alphabet poems
Begin with A, B,
C and

Definitely

End with X, Y,

Z.


The
Acrostic
Is
Wonderful
And
Natural
