Some think it childish, but I rather like acrostics. As sonnets were to Elizabethans, acrostics are to me: a poetical diversion and an exercise in one.  The variation in name length (I almost always base it on a name) inspires different solutions for meter and rhyme… if I decide to use either. Some of mine are presented here for your entertainment, sorted by the name which formed each.
