(An Acrostic Poem)
Diversity creates a blend
Inspired beauty, end-to-end
Viewed with a non-judgmental eye
Enticing looks as passersby
Realize that true beauty lies
Shared with a varied bloom bouquet
It’s better with a vast array
That shows uniqueness of them all
Yet joins them nicely overall
An acrostic is a poem which spells out a word or idea. Sometimes what it spells out is the title of the poem itself.
The first letter of each line spells out this key word. But variations can be attempted such as having the first letter in the sentence and the last letter in the sentence spell out a word. There is no requirement for meter or rhyme. Although I do believe that they greatly enhance the finished prioduct. Bolding and colorcoding are also often employed.
