An Acrostic Poem for My Children and Grand-Daughter

Student of life, lifelong learner, mother, writer, artist, poet, dancer, musician, and martial artist ... passionate about all of these.

What is an Acrostic Poem?

An acrostic poem is a type of poetry where the first, last or other letters in a line spell out a particular word or phrase. The most common and simple form of an acrostic poem is where the first letters of each line spell out the word or phrase.

Here, I've used the letters of my children and grand-daughter's names to create an acrostic poem for each of them.
