Evening Acrostic

http://www.writersdigest.com/editor-blogs/poetic-asides/poetry-prompts/2011-november-pad-chapbook-challenge-day-29  wants an evening poem and http://margoroby.wordpress.com/ wants an acrostic for her Tuesday Tryout.
Being rather lazy I have combined the two!

Every evening every  worker
Values leisure time
Eases back on effort
Now the time has come
In enjoyment of relaxation
Needed to recoup vitality
Gather force for work next day.

  1. One of my favorite forms of poetry! Nice how you combined the two assignments. Best wishes, Ellen

    Nice acrostic, Viv. They are much harder to write than people realise.

    I love your acrostic. I had never come across that word before but I love your poem and perhaps it will inspire me. Like you, not feeling very inspired at present.

    As a stay at home mom of 3….. Evening is a very precious commidity around here! Truer were words were surely never spoken.

    I don’t believe I’ve ever written an acrostic, Viv, but your writing one using EVENING, may be one of those synchronicity things. Lately I have been doing all my writing while listening to classical music. Every time I hear Chopin’s nocturnes, they speak to me. Something has been building in the back of my mind, and thanks to your poem, the pieces have fallen together. I’m thinking of a series of nocturne poems—music of the evening. Undoubtedly it has been done before, but something is pushing me in that direction. Thank you.

      I’m so glad to have inspired you, particularly as I am feeling the opposite of inspired at the moment. Chopin’s Nocturnes are gorgeous – some of the earliest music I learned on the piano. Have you discovered John Field’s Nocturnes? They are equally enchanting. Vx

    I don’t even know what an acrostic IS! c

    I was going to say, There, there! But you didn’t even make the acrostic about the topic! Tsk. Tsk. Although, for those as busy as you keep, the evening might be considered a holiday. Hope you slow down a tiny bit this coming month. Tiny.
