Spelling It Out Write a verse of poetry that spells something down the left side that is related to the topic, in other words, the first letter of every line. For example: Something I'm thinking of, it lights up a room Maybe it's bright? Destroying the gloom If anyone answers, I wonder whom? Lest they notice my simple clue Easy is this puzzle to do... ---------- Theme: Happiness It's a fairly simple theme. There's a lot of freedom in it. Whether you make it into a story, a description, or whatever else your muse can conjure, make it spell something out! I think it would be funny to write a poem that fits the theme, but spells out something opposite. Consider that a bonus challenge! It's optional though, so you don't have to do it.
