Homework Help: Poetry

Posted by Mystery chicken on Sunday, December 12, 2010 at 6:19pm.

So this is just to double check to make sure all of these figures of speech are right.

METAPHORS- thunder roared and shot crackling spears, as vicious hills unfolded, piercing wind howled in my ears, thunder crackled and exploded, and shot blinding flashes, hostile wind took my breath away, and showered ice cold rain drops, the coolness stung my face, my lungs were burning, my heart hammered in my chest, my legs were made of jelly,fatigue caught up and told me to walk,


PERSONIFICATION- streets grew empty, a rainbow smiled at me and told me to keep on running.

Those are all of the figures of speech that i could find in the following poem, did i miss any?

The sky got dark and clouds rumbled,
streets grew empty and the living retreated.
The scent of rain was in the air
-now turning crisp and cool-
thunder roared and shot crackling spears
the air was chilly and my breath was cold
but my body warmed,
as I kept on running.

I struggled for breath
as vicious hills unfolded.
The piercing wind howled in my ears ,
thunder crackled and exploded
and shot blinding flashes
but still, I continued running.

A hostile wind took my breath away
and showered ice cold rain drops.
An icy downpour soaked my body
and the coolness stung my face.
My lungs were burning and
my heart hammered in my chest
as I continued running.

My legs were weak and made of jelly
and each breath evaporated into mist
Fatigue caught up and told me to walk
but I danced in the rain and laughed in the wind -
and then I continued running.
Fog formed and the ground turned to frost
and crunched beneath my feet.

The clouds opened and the sun shone through
and reached me with its rays.
The ice melted and the grass turned green.
A rainbow formed and smiled at me -
and told me to keep on running.

THANK YOU!
