An Acrostic Poem--By Mary Gunn--Ireland

An Acrostic Poem – in memory of Marion G.

May your celebration of Hallowe’en
And the joy you brought to children’s faces
Remain in the memory of the next generation
Inspiring them to continue the ways of old.

October’s end brought birthday and broomstick
No matter what the weather.

Mary Gunn is a writer from Ireland who has been writing haiku, tanka and other forms of poetry for a few years. Her writing has been published in journals and magazines in Ireland and overseas.
