Poetry Thursday — Alphabet Poem

Hello, I’ve returned.

I don’t know if any of you have ever tried this type of poem before, but it is hard.  It’s one of the first I learned how to do, besides sonnets and haiku, but dang.  Good luck if you try this at home, kids.

You see, the Alphabet poem is a poem where each word of this twenty six line poem starts with the letters of the alphabet, usually in order.  I suppose that was kind of self-explanatory though. 🙂

You might think the hardest will be Q or Z or U, or something like that.  If you did think that, you’d be wrong.  The hardest letter is X.  Xylophone doesn’t work all the time, you know.  The first ABC poem I wrote, I had to use eXcitement for the X word.  Yeah … oops.

These following poems, they took me the longest to write out of any of my other poems, which is kind of sad, because they’re so short.  This is why I only have two poems this week.  (So sorry, lovely beans).
