'Choose two poems from your book that you will later write an essay about and make some notes on their similarities and differences.'

This is what I got:
I chose the poems 'I Never Saw A Moor' by Emily Dickinson and 'Kidnap Poem' by Nikki Giovanni because these two poems are very different. The tone in Dickinson's poem is solemn while Kidnap Poem is written in a funner and more easy-going way.

Now all I need to know is if they share a structural element like meter, rhyme, or free verse, and if they both use an implied or extended metaphor+ more similarities.

Thanks
