SEEDS: An Original Acrostic Poem



I'm sorry that I've missed posting a couple of days during National Poetry Month this year. Certain things have diverted my attention away from poetry and blogging--a family emergency, the death of the only brother of one of my oldest and dearest friends, problems with our heating system, and lots of cooking and baking for Easter.

I went looking through my poetry collections for a poem to post today. Here's an acrostic that I thought would be appropriate for a lovely April day.

Sewn into softened

Earth,

Eager to see the sun, they

Dig their roots deep,

Sprout up, up, up and blast off to the world above.

Love this. I ran across the ones students did last year during April. Really fun.

Nora,

So glad you like my blog. Hope you'll visit again.


Jone,

I didn't have time to write up a poetry post today...so I thought I'd post one of my acrostic poems.

The poem brings home that after an excess of rain, I too am eager to see the sun.

(On the plus side our lawn is so green it looks fake.)

Pam,

We've had lots of rain and cold temperatures this spring. We're finally getting a bit of sunshine and warmer weather in these parts. Still, we've got daffodils blooming in the yard.
