Abecedarian PoemAn abecedarian poem is similiar to the ABC poem but uses all the letters in the alphabet. It starts with "A" and works all the way down to "Z".
It is a form of an acrostic poem. The first letter of each line in the poem spell out the entire alphabet
As I amble down the country lane
Birds sing arias overhead
Courting rabbits scamper past
Down towards the trickling stream
Eddies swirl where leaves touch water
Fish flick past beneath the surface.
Going upwards after crossing
Hill are beckoning me on
Idle clouds drift slowly on high
Just soft wisps up in the blue.
Knots of wild flowers line the pathway
Lilac, yellow, pink and blue
Mixing happily together
Nodding gently in the breeze.
Onward though the path is steeper
Passing through some wooded shade
Quickly now the path is rising
Reach at last the rounded top
Standing tall above the world here
The valley lying spread below
Umber, green and yellow patchwork,
Velvet colours viewed from here,
Winding through, the gentle stream flows.
Xanadu in my England
Yes, this is my dream country
Zealously I’ll guard this land.
