Palindrome Acrostic

Harrumph.
Abbracadabra . . .
Hurrah!


Palindrome: word that is the same, spelled forwards and backwards as in mom, wow, and hah! Also a four-way acrostic for dVerse.  An acrostic contains a hidden word within the poem, usually spelled out from top to bottom within the first letter of each line. In this short short poem, read first letters of each line from top to bottom, or from bottom to top; and read the last letters of each line from top to bottom, or from bottom to top, and you get the same word!  And the message/meaning is that sometimes, magically, a person’s personality can change😊

    A new name for an acrostic pattern: “palindrome acrostic”! Very magical and the meaning seems magical as well.

      It was fun to figure out! One can read many stories into these three words when they are put together with the fourth (hah!) …. loved the prompt, Frank!

    Witty and to the point! A tricky form (with its extra constraints) handled successfully.

    And the second reading of this simple yet complex poem brings it all the more home! 🙂
