Acrostic…..Adventure

Are you familiar with the Acrostic poem? Where you write a word vertically down a page and fit an apposite word or sentence  for each line? 
Acrostic Style – This is a poem that is constructed in such a way that the first letter of each 

line can be compiled together to spell one or more words. They may often be the same as 

the title. 
This example is particularly clever it begins and ends with Stroud, 

by Paul Hansford – 
Set among hills in the midst of five valleyS

This peaceful little market town we inhabiT

Refuses (vociferously!) to be a conformeR. 

Once home of the cloth it gave its name tO, 

Uphill and down again its streets lead yoU. 

Despite its faults it leaves us all charmeD.
Here is a one ended acrostic for adventure. 

Adventure
Addictive activity

Danger beckoning

Voyage into new territory

Extreme excitement

Navigating new pathways

Thrill seeking comes in different colours

Unlimited opportunities

Risk or risk averse there are opportunities to 

Experience adventure.
