    An acrostic is a poem/verse in which the first, middle, or last (or a combination of thesE) letters, spell out a word/phrase.

    The following is an example of an acrostic poem with the word 'stroud' formed from the beginning and end letters (taken from Wikipedia's article on Acrostic):

    Set among hills in the midst of five valleyS,
    This peaceful little market town we inhabiT
    Refuses (vociferously!) to be a conformeR.
    Once home of the cloth it gave its name tO,
    Uphill and down again its streets lead yoU.
    Despite its faults it leaves us all charmeD.
