Poetry Project

Mrs. Willis

5th Period



  • An emerald is as green as grass, A ruby is as red as blood; A sapphire shines as blue as heaven; A flint lies in the mud. A diamond is a brilliant stone, To catch the world’s desire; An opal holds a fiery spark; But a flint holds a fire.

  • Christina Rossetti

Simile- Comparing a emerald to grass

Shall i compare thee to a summer s day

Shall I Compare Thee To A Summer’s Day

  • Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?Thou art more lovely and more temperate.Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,And summer's lease hath all too short a date.

  • Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,And often is his gold complexion dimmed;And every fair from fair sometime declines,By chance, or nature's changing course untrimmed.

  • But thy eternal summer shall not fadeNor lose possession of that fair thou ow'st;Nor shall death brag thou wand'rest in his shade,When in eternal lines to time thou grow'st.

  • So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.

Metaphor- It does not have like or as in the sentence

Grandparents are grand

Grandparents Are Grand

  • Grandparents are grand!GrandMa or GrandPa.Nana, Nona, or Nammy.PopPop, PaPa, or Poppy.Warm welcomes.Happy hugs, holding hearts.Love, Love, Love.Kids, crafts, cooking.Grandparents lending life’s lessons.Many momentous moments.Amazingly awesome!

Alliteration- It is a Tongue Twister

Two sunflowers move in the yellow room

Two Sunflowers Move in the Yellow Room

  • Two Sunflowers Move in the Yellow Room.

  • "Ah, William, we're weary of weather,"said the sunflowers, shining with dew."Our traveling habits have tired us.Can you give us a room with a view?"

  • They arranged themselves at the windowand counted the steps of the sun,and they both took root in the carpetwhere the topaz tortoises run.

Hyperbole- It’s is shining with dew

Poetry project


  • The rain is falling all around,            It falls on field and tree, It rains on the umbrellas here,            And on the ships at sea.

Repetition- It is repeating the word rain
