Request for Poems: Abecedarian

Hope everybody had fun trying to incorporate the ABCs into poems.


Just use the comments again for your links to your poems.


I'll be going on vacation for a week beginning tomorow and will not have my computer with me but have pre-posted a new prompt for Saturday night and the request for next Wednesday. Hope everything works fine! I'll catch up with everyone then.



Some URLs don't come out as links so here's how to do it. (Don't feel bad; it took me months to figure this out! Finally, Gautami took pity on me and showed me how. Thanks, again, G!)
All you have to do is substitute <> for ( and ). You can copy your poem's URL by going to your archives and clicking on that particular post, then go up to the address line at the top of your screen, click on it to highlight it, then right click to copy it.

(a href="paste the URL to your poem here")Title of your poem(/a)

Not from the prompt, but a piece I've been obsessing about for days: The House-Bound Ventures Out

This is the one I wrote with my students. I haven't had time to revise it yet but thought I'd post this rough copy anyway.

We're leaving for vacation in an hour. See you all next week!

Here's an abecedarian I wrote a while back: Copy Editor's Rant

This isn't really an abecadarian, it's an acrostic poem.

I'm new to this, so please do leave comments and suggestions, they will be highly appreciated!

Here's my Empty Nest Limerick which doubles as a limerick prompt.
