Poetry Terms
to know!

The “picture” a reader gets in his or her mind as they read descriptive writing
Sensory language, similes, and metaphors, (see next slides) really create a lot of imagery
Example: The waves splashed loudly on the warm, brown sand.
To make an over the top statement.
Usually used to add humor to writing
Example: I’m so hungry I could eat a horse.

Comparing 2 or more unlike things without using like, as, than, or resembles.
Used to create imagery in the reader’s mind.
More direct comparison than a simile.
Example: The angry boy was a grizzly bear in the winter.

My family lives inside a medicine chest:
Dad is the super-size band aid, strong and powerful
but not always effective in a crisis.
Mom is the middle-size tweezer,
which picks and pokes and pinches.
David is the single small aspirin on the third shelf,
sometimes ignored.
Muffin, the sheep dog, is a round cotton ball, stained and dirty,
that pops off the shelf and bounces in my way as I open the door.
And I am the wood and glue which hold us all together with my love.

by Belinda

Comparing 2 or more unlike things using like, as, than, or resembles.
Used to create imagery in the reader’s mind.
Less direct comparison than metaphor.
Example: The girl danced like a bird on the breeze.
Comparing 2 or more unlike things using like, as, than, or resembles.
Used to create imagery in the reader’s mind.
Less direct comparison than metaphor.

Example: The girl danced like a bird on the breeze.
The repeating of words, lines, phrases, or stanzas

Example: “I sprang to the stirrup, and Jarvis, and he; I galloped, Derrick galloped, we galloped all three.”
by Kenn Nesbitt
Theme: The underlying meaning or message of a literary work.
“Don’t judge a man until you’ve walked a mile in his shoes.”

Internal Rhyme:
The repetition of identical sounds within lines of poetry.

Example: “We three shall flee across the sea to Italy.”
Taylor Swift - A Place in this World

[Chorus:]
I’m alone, on my own, and that’s all I know
I’ll be strong, I’ll be wrong, oh but life goes on
I’m just a girl, trying to find a place in
This world

A word is dead
When it is said,
Some say.

I say it just
Begins to live
That day.
Form: The appearance of the words on the page.

Line: a group of words together on one line of a poem

Stanza: a group of lines arranged together
A big black bug bit a big black bear,
made the big black bear bleed blood.
