Poetry Tow Truck 46: Easy as 1-2-3

Back to basics for this week’s prompt. Children learn their ABCs at earlier and earlier ages, but the alphabet is still the center of what we do as writers years later. There are several ways to write an abcedarian poem that you can read about at the link.  Today I will give you three options.

Option One:

Write a long poem where each stanza begins with a different letter of the alphabet. For a super-duper challenge, use as many words as you can with that starting letter in the stanza without getting too Dr. Seuss-y!

Option Two:

Write a shorter poem where each line starts with a new letter of the alphabet.

Option Three:

Pair up alphabet letters (AB, CD, EF, etc.).  Use these pairs to start lines. For example, the AB line would have to start with an A word then a B word.

Have some fun going back to basics – and show that alphabet who’s boss!
