ABC Poems: Definition and Examples

An ABC poem is a type of poem that has five lines that create a mood, picture, or evokes feelings. These poems are five lines long. The words at the beginning of lines 1 through 4 are in alphabetical order and are made up of words, phrases or clauses. Line 5 is one sentence long and begins with any letter.

Here are a few of my ABC Poems

Dreading the Abuse

Shadows getting longer

Time stands still

Uncontrollable tears

Vicious man soon coming in

God please do not let him hurt me tonight.



Motherhood Is Hard

Questioning eyes

Refusing to submit blindly

Shaking her head in confusion and disgust she

Turned and walked away

I have just made an enemy of my child.

A Caribbean Christmas

Airy, flowing calming breeze

Blowing the sand all over my toes

Crabs and clams scuttle along

Dancing to the winter song

I love the song of the Caribbean Christmas Sea.



Carnival Time

Jumping through hoops of fire

Kissing booths

Laughing children with cotton candy

Monkeys doing tricks

There are many beautiful colorful lights.

Love's Meaning

Love...

Meaningless?

Notorious?

Obsolete?

What really is love?
