Figurative Language Review Game
What figure of speech is predominantly in the chorus of this song?
The First Dandelion
by Walt Whitman


Simple and fresh and fair from winter's close
emerging,
As if no artifice of fashion, business, politics,
had ever been,
Forth from its sunny nook of shelter'd grass—
innocent, golden, calm as the dawn,
The spring's first dandelion shows its trustful
face.
Provide the class with an example of a simile

Wish you were here"

The Grand Finale!

As a team, list all of the figurative language you hear in the following song.

You MUST list the figure of speech AND provide a brief explanation.
For Example: "Simile, when the artist says, 'His love was like red'"
You may use one figure of speech more than once, but you must explain how it is used differently
For Example: "Simile, when the artist says, 'His love was like trying to solve a puzzle when you realize there's no right answer'." Again, this is a simile, but a different example

You MUST provide a piece of paper with your list by the end of the song.
