Definition: a poem, word puzzle, or other composition in which certain letters in each line form a word or words

The word acrostic is from Greek and many acrostic poems are from Greece. The prophecies of the Erythraean Sibyl were written on leaves and arranged so that the letters formed a word. People argue on this because acrostic poetry is also present in the Bible. The word acrostic comes from"akros," meaning "at the end," and "stichos," meaning "line."

Everything is within

Leon Enriquez

Endow firm choice, endow sure style;

Value you cite, value you make;

Etch with clear voice, etch with warm smile;

Reap what you write, reap what you take;

Yes you can see, yes you can be;

Thought starts the flow, thought brings all good;

Health funds plenty, health works surely;

Insight now shows, insight strings mood;

New ideas come, new ideas spring;

Grand feel now sums, grand poise now sings!

Incline your heart, incline your soul;

See what you start, see what feels whole.

Wise is the man wise is the way;

Intuit and play, intuit and sense;

Trust that you can, trust that you stay;

Hurl your own say, hurl voice intensed;

Image you see, image now shows;

Now let things be, now let love glow.
