Metaphor
Poem's Sound :

Free Varese Poem

Alliteration: "were women" Line 1
"my mama's" Line 2
"stout of step" Line 3-4
"down doors" Line 7-8
The tone of this poem is confident, proud, firm because she is almost boasting about WOMEN and the advancements of female rights and things women are aloud to do more over time.
The main idea of this poem is to show and explain some of the major things that have been done and changed in women's favor over time. For example... it says how women have also been in as much danger like men in the armies.
This poem speaks to the younger generation of women.
The Speaker

in this poem is the author, the way you know is she uses the word "my" which is referring to first person P.O.V. making the speaker, the author.
Imagery

- "Ironed Starched Shirts" Line 9-11
- "led Armies" Line 12 & 13
- "Headragged generals" Line 14
- "mined Fields" Line 15 & 16
- "Booby-trapped Ditches" Line 17 & 18
Punctuation :

Caesura

is a grammatical pause, such as a question mark, in the middle of a line. It adds emphasis, and brings attention to the words that automatically follow. Walker only uses two punctuation marks, a caesura in line three,
"Husky of voice
--
stout of"
and in the very last line she ends with a period closing the thought, and bringing the poem to an abrupt end.
