what is a good song for remembering poetry terms. I memorize lyrics really well.Please help ;-)
If you'll list the poetry terms you want to remember, we'll try to help you.
Please also include a brief definition of each term.
metaphor- commparing 2 unlike things without using like or as
Simile- comparing 2 things using like or as
Oxymoron-ex. jumbo shrimp, pretty ugly
Personificaton- giving human qualities to inanimate objects
Alliteration- initial repetition of consonant sounds
But I need way more poetry terms than this, such as illusion,etc
A metaphor is neat --
The fog creeps in on little cat feet.
Use like or as for a simile --
Dad is solid like an old oak tree.
For an oxymoron, don't be limp --
Just think of extra jumbo shrimp.
I'm a terrible poet -- but you'd learn much more by making up your own lyrics.
thankx. but is there a song on site whih'll help me memorize my poetry terms . If you find a link to one please list it, Thanx
Yours was awesome Ms Sue I really liked it, bu I need to hear it, not read it
I didn't find a song. Sorry.
That's Okay, you tried and that was enough, thanx Ms Sue Ireally appreciate it
You're very welcome. I guess you just have to memorize these terms and definitions the old fashioned ways. Write the words on one side of a note card and a definition and example on the other side.
Practice, practice, practice!
yup practice makes perfect. I really love this website, its the best one on earth
