July 6 2009 Poetry Newsletter


I found a very interesting poetry style this week while researching various acrostics.
I'd love to share with you what I found! You can read more at:

Serana- reviving acrostic poetry
Acrostics have long been used as a poetic form and a memory tool. US Army veteran, David J. Serana has been reviving this form as a high tribute named after his father.

I have posted a new forum topic for acrostics- be they silly, beautiful, or a tribute, I would love to read yours- you can post at:

I wish all of you a wonderful week! This week went by so very quickly it seems-
Please feel free to email me or stop by and say hello!



Thy genius calls thee not to purchase fame In keen iambics, but mild anagram: Leave writing plays, and choose for thy command Some peaceful province in Acrostic Land. There thou mayest wings display and altars raise, And torture one poor word ten thousand ways.

-Dryden,John
