Can you offer an example of an Acrostic poem using the word rose?

Acrostic poems are relatively simple to write, but like all

poetry, it is an art form to get what you want to express exactly

right.

In this case, the poem could be as simple as

Reaching

Outward...

Summoning

Emotion

Some people who do Acrostic poems insist on only one word per

line (each line starting with a letter of the word you are using),

but others allow several words, thus:

Radiating heat,

Overpowering strength...

Such words as "love"

Exceed the confines of language.
