#2 Identifying Figurative Language
Transcript of #2 Identifying Figurative Language
He walked softly as a cat
And told me many lies
#8. With processions long and winding
With the countless torches lit
My soul has grown deep like rivers.
It is dreams that have destroyed us.
# 6. And then heart with pleasure fills,
And dances with the daffodils.
#7. The Balloons hang on wires
they float their faces on the face of the sky.
#4. Oh, never, if I live to a million,
Shall I feel such terrible pain.

Bear in mind
That death is a drum
The poet is comparing death to a drum without using the word "like" or "as."
