Pieces of Poetry: Assonance

21 Jan

(alliteration and consonance).

Don’t forget to record the following in your notebook for each poetry mini-lesson:

  1. A definition
  2. an example
  3. A poem you like that uses this technique
  4. Write your own poem that uses this technique

Have a look at explanation of assonance here:

Again returning to my favourite lune, can you locate the assonance:

When the sun’s

rays hit the shades, it

lights up lines.

Originally published here.

Once you have found your own example of poem that uses assonance, try using it on one of the simple poetic forms from Mr. Tangey.
