Poetry Terms
Personification
Imagery
Stanza
Hyperbole
Line
A row of written or printed words
Example

Twinkle twinkle little star
How I wonder what you are
Up above the world so high
Like a diamond in the sky
The words highlighted
in green make up a line
Language that uses words beyond their literal meaning, often comparing two very different things
I am fast and fun.
I can dream, dreams that nobody has dreamt before.
I would go on adventures all over the world.
I want to write out my imagination.
I enjoy seeing peace.

I am fast and fun.
I want to fly and taste the air.
I am not afraid to say what I want.
I feel such smooth things that touch my fingers.
I find such pretty things in nature.

I am fast and fun.
I want to be a soccer star.
I think hard about things.
I wonder where we go when we fade.
I feel so great when I help someone.
The "voice" that the reader hears in a poem
A deliberate exaggeration to emphasize a point.

I’m bigger than the entire earth
More powerful than the sea
Though a million, billion have tried
Not one could ever stop me.

I control each person with my hand
and hold up fleets of ships.
I can make them bend to my will
with one word from my lips.

I’m the greatest power in the world
in this entire nation.
No one should ever try to stop
a child’s imagination.

The sea had climbed the mountain peaks,
And shouted to the stars
To come to play: and down they came
Splashing in happy wars.

Metaphor
Simile

Brings dark, like a large cloud

Language that helps the reader imagine sights, sounds, smells, and other sensory experiences.
A comparison between two unlike things, not using
like or as.

I look in the mirror at the beginning of each
day, and ask myself what mask should I
place on my face today.

No not the sad one it's too revealing, I
don't want to show the world my true ..........
Repetition of consonant sounds at the
beginning of words.
Example

Bee, Bet, Beat
A group of lines within a poem.
Stanza

The chilly weather settles into your bones.

Those once green leaves turn
Red, yellow, orange, and brown.

CRRNCH! go the leaves,
Beneath your feet.

The birds fly in a victory “V” formation,
To where the sun rules the skies.

The days of winter are lurking around
Waiting to be free falling.
Metaphors are also in fiction!
Can you think of any?

A word that makes the sound it describes.
Crack an egg.
Stir the butter.
Break the yolk.
Make it flutter.
Stoke the heat.
Hear it sizzle.
Shake the salt,
just a drizzle.
Flip it over,
just like that.
Press it down.
Squeeze it flat.
Pop the toast.
Spread jam thin.
Say the word.
Breakfast's in .
