An acrostic poem is one when the first letter of each line spells a word or phrase. Mine spells the title of the poem: "Magnanimous". And the poem tells the story of its definition.
Mankind traverses the earth.
And seeing a great many people,
Grows in a great many aspect.
Not completely, but essentially
Accounts for the grace of travellers
Not in bitter or shallow way, but
In fulfilling duty the good samaritan,
Magnanimous of word and action,
Offers up his seat, his drink, offering
Up some ease of suffering, to his
Sister or brother on the living road.
