Seasonal Acrostic Poetry

An acrostic is a poem in which the first letters of each line spell out a word or phrase.

Usually, the first letter of each line is capitalized. This makes it easier to see the word spelled out vertically down the page.

frosty-breath2-300x197Frost

Fingers snuggled in colourful gloves,

Roaring steamy breath,

On roof tops icicles glisten,

Silvery dusting covers the ground,

Ten tingling toes.

By Mrs Lyons

WALT: Write your own FROST acrostic poem.

Acrostics are easy to write because they don’t need to rhyme, and you don’t need to worry about the rhythm of the lines. Each line can be as long or as short as you want it to be.
