Bow-Tie Pasta: Acrostic Poems

Acrostic? What kind of stick is that? Actually, it’s a poem! Acrostic poems are created from a word or phrase written vertically down the page. Each letter becomes part of a line in the poem, revealing a thought or a clue about the poem’s topic. Author Brian P. Cleary shows how even the wackiest words can make an acrostic poem.

Bow-Tie Pasta is packed with acrostics to make you snicker and snort. And when you’ve finished reading, you can try your hand at writing your own poems!
