!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Poetry TERMS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Hyperbole is when you make a sentence and over react. You can make a hyperbole by going to the extremes with the sentence to the point where it is unbelievable.
For example: It is so hot outside, I am about to burn!!
It is how you compare one thing to another. The words you use for comparing the sentences like or as. It shows how 2 things can be compared. Similes are different from metaphors because metaphors don't use the words like or as.
Peter Piper picks a peck of pickled peppers, for example is an alliteration. Alliteration is when you use the sound of a particular letter, and you continue to repeat it. It is also known as a tongue-twister because it confuses the reader in pronunciation.
Glad you asked. A metaphor is a type of figure of speech
that describes something and is comparing it to something else without using the words "like" or "as".

For example: She is such a stubborn bull.
Okay, music is awesome, but poetry is the main focus. Since there are a lot of definition, in this case, it is referring to the pattern of stressed and unstressed syllables. It brings order to the poem.

For example: I hear the sound of laughter and the voice of a human.

Iambic Pentameter
Great, they forgot the Iron pan.
Don't worry, maybe the humans won't eat us anymore
We'll leave math up to Ms. Sconyers. Meter in Poetry means to just count how many stressed and unstressed variables or syllables in each line, couplet, or stanza.

For example: That

Basically is to write about whatever you want. You don't have to have a certain tempo with stressed and unstressed syllables. Your poem doesn't have to rhyme either. It is your version of a poem. Today, that's what many poets do. They don't follow a meter, or rhyme. They express their feelings.

For example: The days are dark shadows. We don't have to have any rules. The place is crowded. Flowers die. Life ends.
It is the pattern between the lines of poems and songs. Since songs are the same things as poems. It usually is depending at the end or between the words of the stanza. If 2 lines rhyme, then it has a pattern. It goes like this; aa,bb,cc.

For Example: The weather is nice.
I rolled my dice.
The stars are high.
I must go, bye-bye.
It is like ordinary writing that people use. It is also used in poetry though. It all depends on the rhythm. It is used in everyday life and you don't even know it!!

For Example: Everything that happens is for a reason.
Cars fly. I can't believe that my locker
won't open.
It is a pair of 2. Just like a pair of socks. You have 2. It usually consists of 2 lines, of course in a poem, that have some similar rhyme scheme or that they rhyme, and have the same meter.

For Example: The vending machine took my

And my dog chewed on his

Rhyme is found all over the place. Usually, it is found in songs and poetry. Rhyme is what gets people's attention. If it wasn't for this, most of your favorite songs would just be prose.
An Iambic Pentameter is not a place. It is a way that is usually used to show the rhythm that has a pair of 10 syllables per line. Many of William Shakespeare's plays and stories have iambic pentameter. Some of them are Romeo and Juliet and Macbeth.
Personification is actually simple. It means that you give something that is not human, human characteristics. You would say that the flowers danced in the wind. That would be personification because the flowers don't dance.

For example: The wind hit the car and the windows screamed.
It is like being very thirsty in a dry desert. It is a type of expression that is used to imagine things that aren't actually there. It happens all the time when you are day dreaming. You imagine things that aren't there. It is good to do this in writing because you can give the reader a better understanding.
Everything that involves from sounds that are telling that something exploded. It is showed in almost all of the cartoons especially in Batman, the classics though. They show the word of what is going on.

For example: The bomb exploded,
it went.
It is the resemblance of the first word. It is especially used in vowel sounds in words. That first word is repeated in the next sentence or next part.

For example:
are a lot of things.
things make the bathroom look bad.
There's another word that is a term for music. Since we speak of poetry, it is a form of verse. It is a narrative poem, that is usually sung.

For example:
I walk carelessly down the dark road.
My heavy black boots constantly clicking.-
Ankoku Gekido
It is the total opposite of describing something. It is someones meaning by using a different way of showing what you literally mean.

For example: A
is hard
like a
