I'm frozen. A frigid wind
numbs my skin when it blows by,
as snow crystals sing and dance
nearby like gypsies. They find
their way through stitchings in my
amber coat. Even fire can't
remedy this cold, cruel thought.
Could it be I'm trapped within
the south pole? My bones turning
into ice, my blood has stopped
circulating. I'm frozen
at my own gypsy's leaving.

An Acrostic can be written in any verse or in any form. It is usually metered and rhymed, though it is not necessary. An acrostic is a poem whose initial letters of each line, when read down spell a name, a phrase or some type of word. In this poem's case, it spells: In Antarctica
