Imagery
Poets use imagery to help their reader see and feel things in their poem. The poet uses the five senses to make their poems seem more real.
Fall

The chilly weather settles into your bones.
Those once green leaves turn
Red, yellow, orange, and brown.
CRRNCH! go the leaves,,
Beneath your feet.
The birds fly in a victory “V” formation,
To where the sun rules the skies.
The days of winter are lurking around
Waiting to be free falling.
