An acrostic poem is very easy to write.  It can be about any subject. This kind of poem can be written  in  different ways, but the simplest form is to put the letters that spell your subject down the side of your page.  When you have done this then you go back to each letter and think of a word , phrase or sentence that  starts with that letter and describes your subject. The following poems are examples of acrostic poems  written in this format. The students used AppleWorks to compose their poems.

Mothers are really sweet and kind
Only the sweetest thing on earth
