Kentucky good

Eatens, serve fried or baked

Naked or prepared, 'tis definitely not steak.

This was a rough attempt from me, but maybe you could clean it up a little. I'm not a huge fan of acrostic poems but i do like a good challenge.

Do free verse poems need titles?

Not neccesarily, though a title is extremely helpful. Having a title can be used to clue a reader in to the poem's concept, or even build emotional tension. I have a handful of poems I simply call "Untitled", because I felt a usual title was entirely neccesary.

It depends on what you are trying to accomplish with your poem.

Is epic poetry written in free verse?

Generally no, Epic poetry is written in what is called often "epic format". This is intended for verbal rhyme, as the ending sound in many will coincide with one another. It is also when the stressed part of a word is the same sound as another. For example, "Sixty Stressed Snakes Sneaking about the cavernS Soiled Sub-terrain."

That is what the original styles of epic poetry often used, but that is not to say Epic Poems today are not free-verse. There are many Epic Poems in any plethora of styles, so for today's standard, and Epic Poem is a poem of great length, often having a heroic style of story (main character, issue for character, losing battle, heroic comeback, final victory being purely positive or a total tragedy.)

If you are attempting to make an epic poem, I would suggest switching between total free-verse and a simpler rhyme scheme (1-2-1-2-1-1-1 works nicely). This helps because your gritty details can shine, but clever puns to speed through a situation can also prevail.

Who is the author of the free verse poem One Solitary Life?

Helen Steiner Rice is credited with this somewhat off-base religious tract. I am glad you call it a poem. There are a number of theological off-course angles- if not actually mistatements in the poem. It seems to imply a possibly temporary Mobility handicap on The Christ when he was a youngster ( possible?) and seems to imply his Supernatural powers were dormant in this period. along the mobility handicap line it seems to suggest- indeed directly states that he never traveled more than fifty miles from his point of origin which is absurd- it is known St. Paul- using the primitive transportation of the period- ships, afoot, and probably horseback- yes., definitely, he was an ex- Roman foreign legionnaire.- well, Paul got around and surely covered thousands of miles deep into Greek and Roman territory- take a look at a map these countries and Israel hardly ( touch borders). The song seems to ground Christ with a ( Fifty Mile Restriction) akin to those ( for very sensible reasons) applied to Volunteer Firemen when (On Call) status- hey a fire could break out locally! I never liked this Under-Dog approach to the Divine Master, and while not sacrilegious, it does seem to impose limitations on Christ that did not, or probably did not exist. Look at the travels of St. Paul! ( same period). I have doubts as to whether Helen Steiner Rice ( very prolific Hallmark Cards poetess) was a real person or a composite name used by several writers ( common practice with Hardy Boys and some Science-fiction yarns). at any rate she or they was NOT a competent theologian!
