Poetry Crosswords

This page contains free crosswords that are based on poems.

If you like crosswords, then you can try these special crossword that I have made with poems. The poems have one word missing in each line. That word also goes into the crossword. Thus, you can use the crossword as an aid in filling in the poems.

If you enjoy this kind of puzzle, then let me know. I can make a custom crossword for you with the poem, poems, or poem segment of your choosing. It could be your own poem or a traditional poem. There should be at least 4-5 words on each line. The text should have about 20-40 lines. I remove one word from each line, so the number of lines is the same as the number of words in the crossword.
