       Acrostic form, the first letter of each line when read vertically spells out the name of the title or message. An extra bonus is that it rhymes. An acrostic, done in proper form, need not rhyme.

    The art of poety, I believe, is a gift given to one by our Supreme God. This gift, when found, in order to be developed into messages carried forth, and delivered with clarity, must have a training period. This training period is much like any other apprenticeship program.

    Every poem is a gem unto itself. However, through training, one learns to take this gem from a rough form to a brilliant and polished state.

    This poem is about the development of the gifted poet, an artist looking forward to the first published works.

    Hope you enjoy, and recognize yourself within this poem.

    God bless,

    Patiently, developing the gift you have found

    Openly, learn to rhyme by spell or sound

    Engrave all thoughts, pen upon paper

    Time, do make note of each musing caper.

    In declaration, for poetic styles to find

    Newest friend, the dictionary, do keep at your side.

    Talented, message falling from your memories net

    Reach, deeply within, it comes together, not to fret

    Alas, meaning's perfect word do artfully display

    Indeed, your tale may not be to flatter today

    Now is the time, your poem in print draws near

    Invite, hasten to deliver, come closer to hear

    Not to refrain, poetic styles you have discerned

    Gifted future, go forth, lessons are well learned.

    2005 Yvonne Marie Crain

      This is a lovely poem. First let me say that this style is very well done by you and I know it isnt easy when the first letter of every sentence is already predetermined. And of course in addition to that, you rhymed it all as well. Very good. You express yourself well with your words and I think all of us writers can find a part of ourselves within this poem. Very nicely written and expressed. You capture the essence of a poet with your words. Nice. Take care.

      Yes, Yvonne, lessons are well learned. Everything you have described in the desciption and poem itself reflects what Elite has taught me. Before I was a wild poet, I would write what came out of my own mind with no one to judge my work, and nobody to give advice. Thank you for this beautiful post.

      wow Yvonne, i can really relate to this, as im a poet in training. and because it just reminds me of me when i first started out. this was so accurate about every poet when they first start out I'd say.

    Openly, learn to rhyme by spell or sound

    this was definitely one of the hardest abilities i had to learn...rhyming was never my thing, so i always tried hard to do it, and i would usually use words that made no sense, or contridicted myself.

    Indeed, your tale may not be to flatter today

    tis very true, not every poem is of flattery, nor is it of death, or happiness, etc. i can see how a young poet would come to know this.

    Gifted future, go forth, lessons are well learned.

    ahh, just like me, i've learned so much here at eliteskills and i've used these lessons in poetry, or in other words, criticism from others, to improve and do better with my poetry. making simple poems for my friends or even just for no reason.

    poet in training. the message is the title, good thinking, that was a good idea.
    well Yvonne, im glad i read a poem today that i can relate to, thank you. take care and god bless.
    oh, and if you get a chance, take a trip to my page, i've got a little problem and i'd like to get your opinion on it...just read my newest journal. thanks
