I wrote the acrostic Battle of Gettysburg poem you can read below. What do you think?
An acrostic poem is where you spell a word with the first letter of every line of the poem.
The lines can be simple or quite complex with techniques such as alliteration, metaphors, rhythm, and rhyme.
Writing an acrostic about Gettysburg or the Civil War seems to be a popular assignment for students since there are so many words and topics that can be used.Did you have to write a poem like this for school or have you written one for fun?
Now you try writing an acrostic poem! Do another Gettysburg acrostic or try related terms like Abraham Lincoln or General Robert E. Lee.
