Dandelions

Dancing out of green space,

A sun, then more and more.

New for a day, and soon

Dreamy husks with wispy puffballs,

Each one – perfect to make a wish on.

Like all good wishes, they float away

In the warm/cool breezes of spring,

Out into the world like a silent prayer.

Nature’s masters of survival,

Seeding our landscapes with starry wonder.

Here is a great book by Paul Paolilli and Dan Brewer to teach students how to write acrostic poetry.

This book is a great resource to read about different kinds of poems.

  1. It’s hard to write a good acrostic. I love these lines at the end: Nature’s master of survival, / Seeding our landscape with starry wonder. Dandelions are “silent prayers”
