Poetry
anaphora

A rhetorical device in which several successive lines, phrases, clauses and sentences begin with the same word or phrase

Example: “Song of Myself” by Walt Whitman

Ever the hard unsunk ground

Ever the eaters and drinkers, ever the upward and down-

ward sun, ever the air and the ceaseless tides,

Ever myself and my neighbors, refreshing wicked, real,

Ever the old inexplicable query, ever that thorn’d thumb,

that breath of itches and thirsts,

Ever the vexer’s hoot! hoot! till we find where they sly one

hides and bring them forth,

Ever love, ever the sobbing liquid of life,

Ever the bandage under the chin, ever the trestles of death.

Anaphora
assonance

Rhyme scheme – The repetition of vowel sounds

Repeats vowels but changes consonants

Example: Strips of tinfoil winking like people from “The Bee Meeting” by Silvia Plath

Additional examples: grape/shave, ripe/pine
