Rhyme Scheme

end rhymes occur
Continuous as the stars that shine (A)
And twinkle on the milky way, (B)

Along the margin of a bay: (B)

Ten thousand saw I at a glance, (C)
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance. (C)

Representation of the five senses: sight, taste, touch, sound, and smell

Creates mental images about a poem’s subject
The newborn flowers blossom
in all sizes and vivid colors.
When you walk by, their sweet

My family lives inside a medicine chest:
Dad is the super-size band aid, strong and powerful
but not always effective in a crisis.
Mom is the middle-size tweezer,
which picks and pokes and pinches.
David is the single small aspirin on the third shelf,

And I am the wood and glue which hold us all together with my love.

Chipmunks chatter and scurry,
Blue jays scream and scold.
Robins talk and gossip
demanding their story to be told.
Squirrels skip and box one another
and rabbits play hop scotch.
The games they play, the sounds they make
Really are top notch.
The repetition of usually initial consonant sounds in two or more neighboring words or syllables
Betty Botter bought some butter,
but, she said, the butter's bitter;
if I put it in my batter it will make my batter bitter,
but a bit of better butter will make my batter better.
So she bought a bit of butter better than her bitter butter,
and she put it in her batter and the batter was not bitter.
So 'twas better Betty Botter bought a bit of better butter.
