A is for Absent - Rhymed Acrostics A to Z



A is for Absent - Rhymed Acrostics A to Z

'Allo there, April!

Participating in both NaPoWriMo (National Poetry Writing Month) and the A to Z Blogging Challenge, Nickers and Ink will feature a month-long 26-entry series of rhymed acrostics this April.

Acrostic poetry need not rhyme. In fact, it most often does not. But I like a challenge, so here we go.

Stick around. Sign up. Follow or subscribe, so you can catch all the posts.
  
Absent

Anyone may step away
Breaking bonds that once held sway,
Slipping from the inner ring,
Exiting with broken wing.
Nodding heads and shaking fists:
Tell me, will I yet be missed?
c2013 by Linda Ann Nickerson

  1. Well done! I enjoy acrostics, and occasionally torture myself by trying to write acrostic limericks. :)

  2. I love that poem! Makes one wonder, truly.. I try my own hand at writing, but... I'm not really successful. Unless I do free verse but its still bad haha.

    Found you through the A-Z List,
