Written for a poetry challenge; rhyming acrostics are very limiting and I find them difficult to write.



Alice in Wonderland         (Rhyming Acrostic)
Alice, dear Alice in your land of wonder;
Listen, can you hear a voice like thunder?
Is it the Jabberwock or the Mad Hatter;
Could it be the Knave of Hearts, for that matter?
Everyone in your world can alter their voice.
In your magical realm everyone has a choice.
Now that these visions have set the scene,
Will you please tell me all that you’ve seen?
Oh how I am wishing to be with you there;
Nothing would stop me from meeting the March Hare.
Down in that extraordinary rabbit hole,
Everyone is eager to take a thrilling stroll;
Reality fades and fantasy flourishes.
Ladies and gentlemen you may make your wishes.
Alice will be our most gracious guide;
No one must stray away from her side.
Do not let common sense be swayed by your pride.

Ah, Alice in Wonderland, rhyming with wisdom you did it, and I think there's an Alice in all of us ladies, especially stated for myself. Glad I could read this poem, only wish I'd read it much earlier in time. I think it will be a great comfort to me in the future for good reading.

I love it! I have always identified with Alice.

Love ya!

Not only is your acrostic rhyming, but it gives an insight into some of the characters of Alice in Wonderland. Extraordinary!

God bless you,

To write an acrostic using the title 'Alice in Wonderland' that is about Alice in Wonderland seems an uneasy task, and you have managed to do a fine job with it. Flow seems good to me. I enjoyed the read. This is a good poem though I would not say it is one of your greatest.

Almost broke into a little Men at Work for a moment, and then remembered that the Mad Hatter was the result of mercury used during hat-making.

Goodness, Regis... ANY rhyming acrostic is difficult but one of THIS extraordinary length and complexity of subject matter might be thought near impossible to accomplish with any degree of continuity and success... Very well done! YOU DID IT! This reads perfectly relaxed and complete and remains true to the beguiling nature and dialogue of the original. Impressive! :)) xx
