    • Hi Ian. Thanks for your comments, and I’d love to see your acrostic poem about dogs. 🐕🐕🐕 Alys

  1. Hi Alys I liked your acrostic poem about chocolate . Chocolates really yummy do you like dark chocolate or milk chocolate??

    • Hi again Ian – Hmmm, definitely milk chocolate, I think. Although I sometimes like dark chocolate. Alys

  2. Dear Alys,

    I like this poem because I like eating chocolates at Easter. I liked how you made the poem short with rhyme and I like it because it is an acrostic poem.

    Kind regards


    • Hi Ranulaka. Acrostic poems can be a lot of fun to write. I wonder if you have ever tried writing one?! I chose chocolate because I LOVE sweet things, especially Easter treats! It took me at least five or six tries to get it to rhyme correctly. Alys

  3. Dear Alys,
    This poem was very creative and I like the way you put the letters in ‘chocolate’ and made funny sentences with the letter. 😂😁😂
    This poem was so funny that I was glad I wasn’t drinking any milk at that time.

    Kind regards

    • Hi again Tirath. It was so much fun trying to write this poem. And it took ages! Firstly, I did some research to learn about how cocoa beans are processed to make chocolate. This involved lots of chocolate eating. 🤣🤣 Then, I decided to write an acrostic poem but without rhyming. Lastly, I changed my mind and decided to rewrite the poem with rhyming words. Phew. I’m very glad you like it. And that you didn’t spill any more milk 🤣 Alys
