This a poetry form invented by AP’s own Andre_ben-YEHU
It is named — BIBLIOBIOGRAPHIC PROFILE ACROSTIC. It may be rhymed or blank verse on any poetic frame and verse’s length; and “Poetic License” is allowed in the meter.
The composition in this form must paint a profile on the Tributee, and use title (s) of the tributee’s literary production within the stanzas or stanza. (Thus is is a formulaic work)
The purpose of this form is to honor the Tributee-author, the poetic Art, and to promote the tributee’s works.
Here is an example poem by Lawrencealot
Eusebius ( BIBLIOBIOGRAPHIC PROFILE ACROSTIC)
MIRROR, MIRROR, a horror story moved me, lacking gore.
Intrigued by Michael’s mild approach I ventured to read more.
Clearly FLOWER FROM THE STARS comes ready to delight fans
Having thrived on fantasy taking place in many lands
And thrilling readers of his poems. There I’ve read him most.
Even active folks may miss him He’ll not compete nor host.
Look for GUILE, CAMILLE, or POUT, different forms everyone.
Forms used by Swinburne left unnamed, reemergence he’s begun.
AMERA IS penned by this swain is exemplar Trijan refrain.
Now, VOICE OF ANGELS, Swinburne’s work and CAMILLE is again.
THE CHATEAU and THE CENTAURESS are sonnets with distinction.
If we can learn from these- quality won’t face extinction.
Now that I’ve said my piece and presented this micro view.
Arise and go check Eusebius out- all six of you.
