“Friends are
like
chocolate cake

You can never have too many.

Chocolate cake is
like
heaven -

Always amazing you with each taste or feeling.

Chocolate cake is
like
life with so many different pieces.

Chocolate cake is
like
happiness, you can never get enough of it.”
~Unknown

Personification
Dinnertime Chorus by Sharon Hendricks

The
teapot sang
as the water boiled

The
ice cubes cackled
in their glass

the
teacups chattered
to one another.

While the
chairs were passing gas

The
gravy gurgled
merrily

As the
oil danced
in a pan.

Oh my dinnertime chorus

What a lovely, lovely clan!

Alliteration
Through three
cheese
trees three

free fleas flew
. While these
fleas flew, freezy

breeze blew
.
Freezy
breeze made
these three trees

freeze
.
Freezy

trees
made
these trees’

cheese freeze
.
That’s
what made
these three

free fleas
sneeze.
~Dr.Suess
Allusions
No rays from the
holy heaven
come down
On the long night-time of that town;
But light from out the lurid sea
Streams up the turrets silently —
Gleams up the pinnacles far and free —
Up domes — up spires — up kingly halls —
Up fanes — up
Babylon-like
walls —
Up shadowy long-forgotten bowers
Of sculptured ivy and stone flowers
~Edgar Allan Poe
