He bites it day by day,
Until there’s but a rim of scraps
That crumble all away.
The South Wind
He kneads clouds in his den,
And bakes a crisp new moon that…greedy
The Moon’s the North Wind’s Cooky by Vachel Lindsay
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
A peanut sat on a railroad track,
His heart was all-flutter;
The five fifteen came rushing by
The formation of a word from a sound associated with what is named
Giving a non-human, human traits.
Trees were dancing with the wind.
Check by James Stephens
Night was creeping on the ground!
, 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
Along the sky, the ground, the air,
And in the room where I was hid!
But, no matter what
To everything that was without,
She could not put my candle out!
So I stared at the Night! And
Stared back solemnly at me!
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!”

There was an Old Man of Nantucket
Who kept all his cash in a bucket.

Ran away with a man,
And as for the bucket, Nantuckucket

watching, protecting, love
Always looking over the world
From bleakening hills
Blows down the light, first breath
Of wintry wind…look up, and scent
Dripping, slurping, smacking
So messy to eat
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.
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)
