Alphabet Poems

An ABC poem is a poem where each line of the poem begins with a letter in the alphabet, starting with A and moving in order through Z. Each line focuses on building upon the central topic of the poem, creating a specific mood, feeling, or picture in the reader’s mind. There are various types of ABC (or Alphabet) poems. Some use all 26 letters, while others only use 5-6 of the letters in alphabetical order. Abecedarian Poems will always use all 26 letters. Try It Yourself! Templates for writing ABC Poems (PDF):

  1. 1. Alphabet Of Love

    Again I'm sitting with pen in my hand and paper in front of me,
    Breaking all the doors, trying to set my feelings free.
    Carefully I'm choosing the words to write.
    Don't want to keep anything inside.

    To know the difficulty of translating love to writing strikes me as one the greatest struggles each poet must overcome. This poet found a way. Bravo.

  3. 2. If Only

    • By Petra Sheane
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems February 2015

    Every night I dream of how the world could be a better place. I long for the simplest of changes, simple acts of kindness, love, truth, and simple whispers of hope in the night sky. When I see these dreams each night as I pray, the only words that come to my mind are, "If only..."

    If Only...
    A prayer was held in our nation,
    Beauty was seen in more ways than one,
    Children who are lost could find their salvation,

    Give quality time to your loved ones. Otherwise, you will lose them gradually. Relationships are very beautiful, especially those always giving unconditional love.

  5. 3. Support Imagination

    • By Sharon J Spivak
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2019

    The ABC Poem format is a format I have barely used through all the years of writing poetry. However, I was intrigued once I jumped in to try it! My husband of 42 years and I are recently retired and currently living in NC, having moved 3 years ago from New England. Retirement has blessed me with time to finally pursue my love of art and writing. I'm thrilled with this site where I am able to be a part of a community of poets! I'm just getting started, but I look forward to reading others' poems.

    A ball dress, some slippers, and I am in heaven.
    Believe me, pretending and dress up is fun!
    Can you use your own imagination?
    Do give it a try, my little one.

    Above huge hills if ever I could rise,
    Beyond the gravity as Iron Man flies.

    Dashing as the Spider-Man, if fingers were such.

  9. 7. Life In Fairy Land

    Writing for the Summer Poetry Competition brought out the child within me with a sweet tooth, who has been screaming to come out. As a little girl, I did dream of running away to consume chocolate 24-hours a day. What I really wanted then was to have dessert as the first course for my meal, not after I already filled up from savouries. Today I finally managed to indulge in my dream on paper. Having my favourite fairy tale characters joining my sugary feast is just an added bonus.

    As a small child I fancied to sail
    By ocean to a land of fairy tales,
    Camp in a field with Little Red Riding Hood.
    Dazzling stars would fire at the Big Bad Wolf.

    I wanted to try writing an ABC poem for kids. I love to write and like to try my hand at writing all different forms of poetry.

    A cardinal flew past me today
    Because he wanted my attention.

    I am like this poem. He is kinda my friend, but I'm sure he doesn't think of me as a friend. I'm pretty sure he thinks of me as a normal human. I want him to be my BFF.

    A new day is beginning.

    Color the distant skies.
    Dew drops, a glistening symphony
