ACROSTIC POEM

Single Acrostic - 


Example:With a word 'LOVE'



Look for reasons to help when confided
Open your heart and ear when needed
Value their opinions when they say
Enjoy their being with you always

Example :With the Letter 'L'


Learn to forgive with
Little curves called smile making
Lines of the life path straight to
Live in abundance and
Lead a happy life
