1 Break, Break, Break By: Alfred Lord Tennyson

2 Break, break, break, On thy cold grey stones, O sea! And I would that my tongue could utter The thoughts that arise in me. O Well for the fishermans boy, That he shouts with his sister at play! O Well for the sailor lad, That he sings in his boat on the bay! Break, break, break, On thy cold grey stones, O sea! And I would that my tongue could utter The thoughts that arise in me. O Well for the fishermans boy, That he shouts with his sister at play! O Well for the sailor lad, That he sings in his boat on the bay!

3 And the stately ships go on To their haven under the hill; But O for the touch of a vanished hand, And the sound of a voice that is still! Break, break, break, At the foot of thy crags, O Sea! But the tender grace of a day that is dead Will never come back to me. And the stately ships go on To their haven under the hill; But O for the touch of a vanished hand, And the sound of a voice that is still! Break, break, break, At the foot of thy crags, O Sea! But the tender grace of a day that is dead Will never come back to me.

8 Imagery Defined: The elements in a literary work used to evoke mental images, not only of the visual sense, but of sensation and emotion as well. While most commonly used in reference to figurative language, imagery is a variable term which can apply to any and all components of a poem that evoke sensory experience and emotional response (Bob). figurative languageBob Defined: The elements in a literary work used to evoke mental images, not only of the visual sense, but of sensation and emotion as well.
