My Alphabet Poems

 Here are some of my Alphabet Poems I have given students as examples for their poetry.


Alligators are the state reptile

Beautiful beaches are everywhere

Cape Canaveral is where you find the Kennedy Space Center

Delightful climate any time of year

Everglades most beautiful untouched area

Fort Castillo de San Marcos is one of the oldest forts in Florida

Gulf of Mexico has calmer waters

History is Everywhere

Ibis a bird with a long hooked beak

Jacksonville has ten state and national parks

Key West is the southernmost part of Florida

Lake Okeechobee is known as the river of grass

Magic is found at Disney’s Magic Kingdom

Native Americans from Florida are the Seminoles

Orange juice is the state beverage

Panthers are the state animal

Quiet can be found all over Florida

Rest by one of the many rivers then visit

Saint Augustine the oldest city in Florida

Tourism is our main income

Unique attractions can be found here

Variety of birds and other animals

Weather and wildlife bring back visitors

Xeriscaping is the best way to landscape and save water

Year round growing season

Zebra Longwings are the state butterfly


Attitued is everything                                                

Begin with an idea                                                     

Create Your own world                                              

Dialogue with Characters                                          

Edit, Edit, Edit                                                            

Find your voice                                                          

Gather it all together                                                 

Hook your readers                                                     

Inspire through imagination                                      

Journal daily                                                   

Keep writing                                                               

Laugh often                                                                

Magic through motivation                                         

Negativity has no place

Observe everything

Plan and pace yourself.

Quality over quantity.

Read and revise

Set the tone

Themes are universal

Understand your dreams

Vary your style

What-ifs give you ideas.

Xerox copies

You will mark up

Zoom off to another story



Amazingly beautiful

Crooked, different

Enchanting forests

Gracing homes

Immense jewels

Knotty leafy

Majestic nature

Offering peaceful, quiet,

Remarkable steadfast

Towering unique

Vibrant Woods
