Figurative Language Project A simile is an expressed comparison of unlike things in which the words like, as, resembles, or similar to are used. The Oak
Alfred Lord Tennyson Madeline Hubbard
September 29, 2012 The way you move is
Like a full on rainstorm
And I'm a house of cards "Sparks Fly" - Taylor Swift Simile He lies in wait like a lion in cover;
he lies in wait to catch the helpless;
He catches the helpless and drags them off in his net.
Psalm 9:9 The ball soared through the air as swiftly as a hawk. Original Example Metaphor A metaphor is an implied comparison in which one thing is described in terms of another. But you are a shield around me, O Lord; you bestow glory on me and lift my head up.
Psalm 3:3 A lonely pine is standing
In the north where high winds blow
He sleeps; and the whitest blanket
Wraps him in ice and snow. You ain't nothing but a hound dog
Cryin' all the time.
You ain't nothing but a hound dog
Cryin' all the time.
Well, you ain't never caught a rabbit.
And you ain't no friend of mine. Elvis Presley
"Hound Dog" "A Lonely Pine Is Standing"
Heinrich Heine Personification Personification is a comparison in which human qualities are given to an inanimate object or animal. The Cat & The Fiddle

Hey diddle, Diddle,
The cat and the fiddle,
The cow jumped over the moon;
The little dog laughed
To see such sport,
And the dish ran away with the spoon.

By Mother Goose When marimba rhythms start to play
Dance with me, make me sway
Like a lazy ocean hugs the shore
Hold me close, sway me more "Sway"- Michael Buble Flint

An emerald is as green as grass,
A ruby red as blood;
A sapphire shines as blue as heaven;
A flint lies in the mud.

A diamond is a brilliant stone,
To catch the world's desire;
An opal holds a fiery spark;
But a flint holds a fire. Christina Rossetti "The Flint" Hyperbole A hyperbole is an exaggeration
to emphasize truth. Time slows down
Whenever you're around
Can you feel this magic in the air?
It must have been the way you kissed me
Fell in love when I saw you standing there
It must have been the way
Today was a fairytale "Today was a Fairytale" Taylor Swift If thou dost slander her and torture me,
Never pray more;
abandon all remorse;
On horror’s head accumulate;
Do deeds to make heaven weep,
all earth amazed;
For nothing canst thou to damnation add
Greater than that. William Shakespeare, Act III, Scene III of Othello The eagle smiled upon the girl. Original Example She smacked him so hard his head spun in circles. Original Example Your mind is a river that flows throughout your body. Original Example You blind guides! You strain out a gnat but swallow a camel. Matthew 23:24 The waters saw you, God,
the waters saw you and writhed;
the very depths were convulsed. Psalm 77:16 Alliteration An alliteration is the use of initial consonant or vowel sounds which are the same, as in tried and true. There's a new wind blowin' like I've never known
I'm breathin' deeper than I've ever done
And it sure feels good, to finally feel the way I do Yeah, I wanna feel the sunshine
Shinin' down on me and you
When you put your arms around me
You let me know there's nothing in this world I can't do ....................... "Somebody Like You"
Keith Urban •Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers. A peck of pickled peppers Peter Piper picked. If Peter Piper picked a peck of pickled peppers How many pickled peppers did Peter Piper pick? Peter Piper
Tongue Twister They have no speech, they use no words;
no sound is heard from them. Psalm 19:3 The enthusiastic, engaging speaker influenced many people at the conference. Original Example Imagery Imagery is using words which appeal to our senses. John was a lamp that burned and gave light, and you chose for a time to enjoy his light. John 5:35 I could feel the salt on my skin
and taste it in the air.

Crystallized trees etched upon the sky
Gently painted with pastel colors
A hue of pink, a touch of blue
Surrounded by the softest purple
The winter sky at evening time
Reflects confidence in the dawn
The return of light, return of warmth
Spring but a whisper just behind Mary O. Fumento, 2012 "Winter Sky at Evening Time"
