Sound Effects
Rhyme Scheme is the pattern of rhyme used in the entire poem represented by letters
An Emerald is as green as grass
A ruby red as blood
A sapphire shines as blue as heaven
A flint lies in the mud

A diamond is as brilliant as stone
To catch a world's desire
An opal holds a fiery spark
But a flint holds fire
-Christina Rosseti
simile: figurative language comparing two unlike things using "like" or "as"
The reason why I chose "judgement"was because it is about not to judge by beauty or colors but how they are inside. For example, in "Flint" the flint was lying in mud, which means that the flint was all dirty in mud and rejected; And the diamonds were all sparkly and colorful. However, at the end, it said even if an opal had a fiery spark, "but a flint holds fire." Rosseti probably meant that fire was warmth and love and flint holding the fire was better than all the other gems.
In my opinion, I think this poem was great with good word choices and poetic devices. I liked Flint based on the words the synonyms and word choices. Such as "A diamond is as brilliant as stone;" Rosseti could have used as "pretty" as stone; but she used a better word to describe things. So she used 'brilliant' to describe the "beauty" and the "brightness" of the diamond. She also has a really good use of comparing two things with similes. Rosseti uses natural things such as comparing an emerald to just the color of grass. Therefore, Rosseti's poem was an awe-inspiring poem with many beautiful uses of similes and synonyms.
Christina Rosseti 1830-1894

Figurative Language
Rosseti uses a simile to desribe each gem to compare how pretty they are compared to flint, and later tries to explain how flint is better no matter how less pretty it is
ex."An emerald is as green as grass
A ruby red as blood
A sapphire shines as blue as heaven
A flint lies in the mud"
example in "Flint":
" An Emerald is as green as grass A
A ruby red as blood B
A sapphire shines as blue as heaven C
A flint lies in the mud B

A diamond is as brilliant as stone D
to catch the world's desire E
an opal holds a fiery spark F
But a flint holds fire" E
