OctPoWriMo 2015 – Acrostic – October 1, 2015


Story Book Heroes

Standing there bravely
Tall and thin by day
On my bookshelf they waited
Ready for me
Youthful readers
Bound in gold and red
One about a  princess
One an over worked maid …and
Knights in shining armour
Heralding mighty kings –
Earnest and honest
Riding white steeds –
Onward we travelled
Each evening at bed time
Staving off dangers as I fell asleep.

  1. Oh my goodness, you’re truly off and running–what a fabulous acrostic!!!! Well done, Bastet. I’ll have to go see if there’s a prompt….oh, and I LOVE that badge; I assume we can all use it, who are planning to participate.


    • Thanks J … I love acrostics they’re a lot of fun … tomorrow I’m scheduling (once again) a Palindrome .. let’s see if it’s up to snuff .. as for prompts … there’s a prompt a day that you can use if you like (I wrote this yesterday and was so happy that it came up as a prompt!) Of course you can use the badge and I don’t know yet who will participate .. but last year there was a great group!


      • My acrostic, clouds, will post in a couple hours–it’s finished, and I’m reasonably pleased. I love acrostics too. I won’t be linking up though–it gets too hairy for me, as the challenge-event is on Blogspot. So I’ll be reading yours, and I think another of our friends is participating–not sure if it was Paloma or Ivy who mentioned it. We’ll keep busy, that’s for sure!


  2. I always love my story book heroes and heroines! I’ve created a few of my own, but the only ones that I may eventually publish really aren’t suitable for the kiddies!
    I enjoyed your fun acrostic. 🙂

  4. What a fun poem! Many of my childhood storybook heroes we created by P.D. Eastman and came via post from the Dr. Seuss book club. 🙂
