Transcript of Poetry and Figurative Language
The way a poem
looks on the page
Lines of poetry
are arranged into
Rhyme - repetition of sounds at the ends of words
Rhythm: the musical beat of a poem
Repetition: the use of a word, phrase, or sound more than once
la la la
Alliteration - the repetition of consonant sounds at the beginning of words
Onomotopoeia - words that sound like their meanings
Personification - describing an object, animal, or idea as if it had human abilities or qualities
Hyperbole - great exaggeration
Simile - comparing two unlike things using "like" or "as"
Metaphor - comparing two unlike things without using "like" or "as" - by stating that one thing IS another thing
The sun was a spotlight on the water
Leaves applauded the sunset's magnificent performance
The grains of sand could fill the sky
Wiggly waves washed
ashore with a pulse like
a beating heart
