Alliteration
The occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words.
Betty Botter by Mother Goose
B
etty
B
otter
b
ought some
b
utter,
b
ut, she said, the
b
utter’s
b
itter; if I put it in my
b
atter it will make my
b
atter
b
itter,
b
ut a
b
it of
b
etter
b
utter will make my
b
atter
b
etter.

So she
b
ought a
b
it of
b
utter
b
etter than her
b
itter
b
utter, and she put it in her
b
atter and the
b
atter was not
b
itter. So ’twas
b
etter
B
etty
B
otter
b
ought a
b
it of
b
etter
b
utter.

Metaphor

Metaphor



The Moon’s
the North Wind’s
cooky
.
He bites it day by day,
Until there’s but a rim of scraps
That crumble all away.

The South Wind
is a
baker
.
He kneads clouds in his den,
And bakes a crisp new moon that…greedy
North…Wind…eats…again!
The Moon’s the North Wind’s Cooky by Vachel Lindsay
Simile

Example:
He is as fast as a horse.
I’ve Got a Dog by Anonymous

I’ve got a dog
as thin as a rail,
He’s got fleas all over his tail;
Every time his tail goes flop,
The fleas on the bottom all hop to the top.
Comparison using like or as.
A metaphor is a figure of speech that describes a subject by asserting that it is, on some point of comparison, the same as another otherwise unrelated object.

I'm so hungry
I could eat a horse

Bang Bang!
Toot Toot
by: Anonymous


A peanut sat on a railroad track,
His heart was all-flutter;
The five fifteen came rushing by
Toot! Toot!
peanut butter!
Onomatopoeia
The formation of a word from a sound associated with what is named
Personification
Giving a non-human, human traits.
Example:
Trees were dancing with the wind.
Check by James Stephens


The
Night was creeping on the ground!
She crept
, and did not make a sound

Until she reached the tree: And then
She covered it, and stole again

Along the grass beside the wall!

I heard the rustling of her shawl

As she threw blackness
everywhere
Along the sky, the ground, the air,

And in the room where I was hid!
But, no matter what
she
did

To everything that was without,
She could not put my candle out!

So I stared at the Night! And
she
Stared back solemnly at me!
Hyperbole

Example:

The Old Woman Tossed Up in a Blanket by Walter Crane


There was an old woman tossed up in a blanket,
Seventeen times as high as the moon;
Where she was going I could not but ask it,
For in her hand she carried a broom.
“Old woman, old woman, old woman,” quoth I;
“O whither, O whither, O whither so high?”
“To sweep the cobwebs from the sky,
And I’ll be with you by-and-by!”
Extreme exaggeration.
Landen is so jacked,
he could bench press a car.
The whip.

There was an Old Man of Nantucket
Who kept all his cash in a bucket.
His daughter, called Nan,
Ran away with a man,
And as for the bucket, Nantuckucket
I love
school
It is so very
cool
Even though the homework is
hard
Curt is a
lard
and Pierson is a
tool
Unknown
by: Edward Lear
There was a young lady of
Lucca
Whose lovers completely
forsook her;
She ran up a
tree
And said
"Fiddle-de-dee!"
Which embarrassed the people of
Lucca.

Look up…

From bleakening hills

Blows down the light, first breath

Of wintry wind…look up, and scent

The snow!

Watermelon

Juicy, sweet

Dripping, slurping, smacking

So messy to eat

Snow
When I am old and crippled, with a cane which doesn't go, and doesn't suit me.
And I shall spend all my money on food and my grandchildren and my family, and say we've no money for cinnamon rolls .
I shall sit down on the couch when I am tired and gobble up samples of schnitzel and press alarm bells and run my stick along the wall and make up for the sobriety of my youth.
I shall go out in my underwear in the rain and pick a peck of pickled peppers in peoples gardens a learn how to walk up the stairs.


You can wear old shirts and grow potatoes. And eat three pounds of vienna sausage at a go
Or only schnitzel and carrot for a week. And hoard tacos and quesadillas and burritos and things in boxes.

But now we must have clothes that keep us swagged out. And pay our rent and not defecate in the street. And set a good example for the children. We must have good dinner and read the papers.

But maybe I ought to practice a little now?
So people who know are not to worried and stuff. When suddenly I am old, I will have wrinkles.
Warning

I love basketball
Basketball above all
Ball is life
Married to the game
Ball is wife

Basketball is my best sport
Even though I'm short
I snipe that easy money on the court

So in short
Basketball is my favorite sport
I live on the courts
and I wear jorts (jean shorts)
