How embarrassing. Here I am thinking I’m all cool and inventing a new poetic form with my “acrostic” poetry only to find out. Nope. It’s an established form. 😳
I was even thinking I would need to come up with a different name for it, since I was associating the word “acrostic” with crossword puzzles. 😆
Guess one should check into these things. Nothing new under the sun and all that.
Anyway, at least I can put my mind at ease and just keep calling my poetry what it is. Acrostic poetry.
Only the most
Pride in saying
