    An Acrostic or Name Poem one in which the first letter of each line spells a word, usually using the same words as in the title.

    Example by Edgar Allen Poe:

    An Acrostic

    Elizabeth it is in vain you say
    "Love not" — thou sayest it in so sweet a way:
    In vain those words from thee or L.E.L.
    Zantippe's talents had enforced so well:
    Ah! if that language from thy heart arise,
    Breath it less gently forth — and veil thine eyes.
    Endymion, recollect, when Luna tried
    To cure his love — was cured of all beside —
    His follie — pride — and passion — for he died.
