Valentine's Day Acrostic
St. Valentine Showed Real Love
Love Has a "V"
Valentine was a pastor.
Among his people, he was
Even from a prison cell,
Notes of love he sent.
Teaching them of God's love even
In his dying moments.
Now we must remember him.
Everyone needs God's message of love.

Acrostic poems are simple and fun to write. Use them as a warm-up activity in a writing class or as a vocabulary-building exercise any time.
When teaching poetry to children, start with an acrostic. No rhyming is needed, so kids can produce a poem without too much agony. This is a fun way to reinforce initial letter sounds for emerging readers, too.
