Identifying Figurative Language #2
Transcript of Identifying Figurative Language #2

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.

# 10. But words is like the spots on dice: no matter how you fumbles 'em, there's times when they just won't come.
Words are compared to the spots on dice using the word "like" or "as."
