Acrostic Poem
An acrostic poem is a poem form that places the subject of the poem or a message in an integral position. The subject or message is written vertically on the left side of the page. Each letter of the word becomes the first letter for one of the lines of the poem. Lines of the poem can be a single word, a phrase, or an entire sentence. The first acrostics were written in ancient times. Acrostics were written in the Middle Ages, in Roman Times, and in the Bible. The Dutch like acrostics so much, there’s one in their national anthem. Acrostics may be popular because people enjoy hiding a name, subject, or a message in a poem. Acrostics give students a framework for the poem they write. They are governed in word choice and in length of the poem by their name, subject, or message. Acrostic poems do not typically follow a rhyme scheme or meter. A graphic organizer can help students organize an acrostic poem. The organizer shows the subject or message words in capitals along the left side of the page. It also includes space to write or type the lines of the poems.
