An expensive carpet, this
Underlayment of leaves
Taken and spread
Underneath these bare trees.
Mind you don’t tread as a somber old man;
Neither should you tiptoe -run, kick, and dance.

Acrostic isn’t my favorite ‘form’ for poetry, but can function as a framework for trying to shape a poem. Try it out; especially consider trying it out for my latest Anyone Can Poem challenge at Carrot Ranch!
