Lesson 19: Rythm and Rhyme Unit Test gifted and talented language arts 6 B unit 2: Rythm and Rhyme
Write 1-2 paragraphs in response to the following prompt: Explain how repetition, alliteration, and onomatopoeia are all used in lines 6-7 of “Cynthia in the Snow” or in stanza 3 of “Wind and water and stone.” Then explain the effect of the sound devices on the overall meaning of the poem.
I used “Cynthia in the Snow” What I wrote so far:
In “Cynthia in the Snow” repetition, alliteration, and onomatopoeia are all used in lines 6-7. For example, “It laughs a lovely whiteness, And whitely whirs away,” whiteness and whitely is repetition, whitely whirs is alliteration, and whitely whirs away is onomatopoeia.

I don’t know what to write for the effect of the sound devices on the overall meaning of the poem. What are sound devices?

  1. Read that poem aloud. Read it aloud several times. Read it aloud to someone. Read it aloud with FEELING!

    You should be able to HEAR what the effects of those three devices are.

    Let us know what you think. You don't have to let us know in perfect sentences. You can use this space to try out some of the ideas you find as you have read the poem aloud. We can respond better once you've done these things.

  2. Is the effect of the sound devices on the overall meaning of the poem what you feel when you read the poem? Like I felt peacefulness and cold when I read this aloud.

  3. Good!

    You should write your response in 2 paragraphs -- 1 about the repetition and alliteration and 1 about the onomatopoeia you find. And yes, conclude with what you felt as you read the poem aloud.

    You might start out your 1st paragraph by saying that poetry is meant to be read aloud, not silently in our heads. And then go into the repetition and alliteration all those w's produce. (Hint: Repetition is usually done for emphasis. What would the poet be emphasizing here?)
