Name Poetry
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     Do you like poetry? If you enjoy books by Dr. Seuss, then you know what poetry is. Dr. Seuss liked to write in rhyme. He had fun with his rhyming stories! That doesn't mean that all poems rhyme. Some do not. Name poems do not rhyme. Even so, they can be fun to make.
 
2     Name poems have another name. They are called acrostics [uh-CROSS-tiks]. For now, you are free to call them name poems.
 
3     To begin, take out a clean sheet of paper. Write your name as if it were a tree trunk. It should look like this:
                  N
                  A
                  M
                  E
