By:Tajudin Aliy Poetry Terms Simile is a figure of speech involving the comparison of one thing with another thing, usually using the word "like" or "as" Metaphor Is a figure of speech which something resembles another thing without using the word "like" or "as". Symbol something that represents something else. Structure Structure is how the lines, words and sounds are arranged in a poem. Example: brave as a lion This example is showing that person is really brave. Example: Juliet is the sun. The example above is a metaphor which compares Juliet to the sun. Meaning Juliet is very bright “Ah Sunflower" By: William Blake's Example: By Paul McCann

Christmas tree .
Twinkling with lights
Adorned with gold and silver tinsel .
Softly sparkling in spirals on each branch .
A Christmas tree to gather around in love.
Christmas trees and families captured in the presence where angels dance
A Christmas tree stands in the window, many brightly lit Christmas trees stand in windows lighting
up streets all over town,
bless the tree full of joy and wonder .
Little children
they reach up
then they grab
suddenly the tree
comes falling down. The poem below is called Concrete Poem (also called The Shape Poem or Pattern Poem) uses a word plan that forms the shape of the subject or theme. Ballad Imagery A ballad is a poem that tells a fairly simple story (narrative) "That which befalls me in my Lady's presence
Bars explanation intellectual.
I seem to see a lady wonderful
Spring forth between her lips, one whom no sense
Can fully tell the mind of,and one whence
Another, in beauty, springeth marvelous,
From whom a star goes forth and speaketh thus:
'Now my salvation is gone forth from thee.'" Example: "Ballata 5" by Guido Cavalcanti which emphasizes the form and voice of the standard ballad of the day the formation of mental images, figures, or likenesses of things Example: Once upon a midnight dreary This is an imagery because it gives you a formation of how that December night looks like. Tone Is the writers attitude toward the audience or subject Example: "It was a dark and stormy night" This example sets a scary, and uneasy tone toward the audience Free Verse www.warriornation.net/Forum/showthread.php?t=165642 Source:
http://www.webexhibits.org/poetry/explore_famous_ballad_examples.html http://www.heise.de/ix/raven/Literature/Lore/TheRaven.html Is a form of poetry that does not use consistent meter patterns, rhyme, or any other musical pattern Example: From Little Father

Li-Young Lee (1957- )
I buried my father in my heart.

Now he grows in me, my strange son,
My little root who won’t drink milk,
Little pale foot sunk in unheard-of night,
Little clock spring newly wet
In the fire, little grape, parent to the future
Wine, a son the fruit of his own son,
Little father I ransom with my life. This example surprises the reader because line and stanza counts, syllables, and rhyme schemes may seem random Couplet Source:
http://www.webexhibits.org/poetry/explore_famous_free_examples.html two lines of verse that form a unit alone or as part of a poem, two that rhyme and have the same meter. Example: •"Blessed are you whose worthiness gives scope,/Being had, to triumph; being lacked, to hope." Source:
http://examples.yourdictionary.com/couplet-examples.html Sonnet Example: Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed,
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course untrimmed:
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st,
Nor shall death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st,
So long as men can breathe, or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee. fourteen-line rhyming poem with set structure: a short poem with 14 lines, usually ten-syllable rhyming lines, divided into two, three, or four sections. By: William Shakespeare Example: “Ah Sunflower, weary of time, Who countest the steps of the sun; Seeking after that sweet golden clime Where the traveler’s journey is done;” http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/ah-sunflower/ In this poem, Blake refers to life cycle and uses sunflowers to represent humankind and that they desire everlasting life.
