2  Poems are usually divided into lines and then grouped into stanzas  Figurative language states ideas in new, creative ways  Sound devices enhance mood

3  Metaphor  Personification  Simile  Symbol

4  Describes one thing saying it is something else as in: The house was a zoo this morning!

5  Gives human qualities to something that is not human, as in: The cars growled in the traffic.

6  To use the words like or as to compare two seemingly unlike things, as in: He stormed into the meeting like a tornado.

7  A symbol is anything that represents something else, as in: A dove is a common symbol for peace.

8  Alliteration is the repetition of consonant sounds in the beginning of words, as in: Copying homework begins the swift, slippery slope to academic dishonesty.

9  The use of any element of language—a sound, a word, phrase, clause, or sentence—more than once, as in: Mary had a little lamb, little lamb, little lamb.

10  The repetition of vowel sounds followed by different consonants in stressed syllables, as in: Try to light the fire.

11  The repetition of similar consonant sounds at the ends of accented syllables, as in: I will stand on the beach in the wind and the sand.

12  The use of words that imitate sounds, as in: There was a loud crash as the baseball shattered the window.

13  The repetition of sounds at the ends of words, as in: Winning the crown will eliminate your frown !

14  The rhythmic pattern in a poem, as in: Twinkle, twinkle little star, How I wonder what you are. Up above the world so high, Like a diamond in the sky.

15  Narrative  Haiku  Free Verse  Lyric  Ballad  Concrete  Limerick  Rhyming couplets

16  Narrative poetry tells a story. Narrative poems often have elements similar to those in short stories, such as plot and character.

17  Haiku is three line Japanese verse form. The first and third lines have five syllables, and the second line has seven syllables.  Usually nature- themed. O, foolish ducklings, you know my old green pond is watched by a weasel!

18  Free verse poetry is defined by its lack of strict structure.  It has no regular meter, rhyme, fixed line length, or specific stanza pattern. once a snowflake fell on my brow and i loved it so much and i kissed it and it was happy and called its cousins and brothers and a web of snow engulfed me then i reached to love them all and i squeezed them and they became a spring rain and i stood perfectly still and was a flower

19  Lyric poetry expresses thoughts and feelings  Ballads are songlike poems that tell a story, often dealing with romance and adventure

20  Concrete poems are shaped to look like their subjects. The poet arranges the lines of the poem to create a picture on the page

21  Limericks are humorous, rhyming, five-line poems with a specific rhythm pattern and rhyme scheme. There once was a girl from Troy She always tried to annoy She looked like a moose She laughed like a goose She’s the kid we all should avoid!

22  Pairs of rhyming lines, usually of the same meter and length I cannot go to school today Said little Peggy Ann McKay I have the measles and the mumps A gash, a rash, and purple bumps!
