An Acrostic Poem...

'U’'ndeniably mythological; creatures of fairy tale.
'N’'eeding not any proof, we just know that they were there.
'I’'n dreams, in thoughts, and stories - are where they may be found;
'C’'oloring imagination with feelings quite profound.
'O’'r perhaps in a long ago time; and a far, far away land.
'R’'unning free in fields of stardust;
'N’'ever touched by human hands.
'S’'heltered forever by rumor, their magical mystery stands.


An acrostic poem is a poem that spells a word vertically with every beginning letter of each verse. In this case, it's U-N-I-C-O-R-N-S. For an acrostic, rhyming and/or meter are not necessary, just more challenging, which makes it so much more fun...

acrostic, fantasy, unicorns, fairy tales

I've never heard of that style of poetry before. It was fun and fresh reading. It was very well done
