A Beautiful Sunny Day - Poetic Devices

1. Today, the weather feels like heaven's bliss! 2. The balmy breeze and beautiful soft blue 3. of sky above so makes me think of love. 4. I feel time's right to write a charming poem 5. alone, together with my thoughtful views; 6. the day's bright glow morphs into sunny smiles 7. as sun speaks out to tell me all's okay. 8. Free gift, true fact, sun is my greatest joy! 9. Oh loveliness of day you melt my heart! 10. The words are humming, coming to my mind... 11. not nasty, snippy ones, evoked by rain, 12. but sweet, melodious, soft, sing-song ones 13. that move what's seen to my poetic scene 14. to paint such happiness when weather's fine. 15. And now...my poem...profound or slight? Oh no! 16. To write with pointless pencil...so pointless! Poetic Devices Used In Lines 1 through 16: Words in italics help identify them. 1. Simile 2. Alliteration 3. Internal Rhyme 4. Homophone 5. Oxymoron 6. Metaphor 7. Personification 8. Pleonasm 9. Euphony 10. Assonance 11. Dissonance 12. Parallelism 13. Homonyms 14.Truism 15. Antithesis 16. Pun Lines 10-14 Enjambment August 18, 2018 Contest: Litany of Poetic Devices Sponsor: Line Gauthier
