The first is ‘for the ears’, these are assonance, alliteration and onomatopoeia. The second category is ‘for the eyes’ and relate to the mental image that words create; examples are similies and metaphors. Poetry to me can be fun and exciting if it is made with an energetic rhythm or results in great mental images.

    Poetry is perfect for expressing emotion but I find it extremely boring. I have had nothing to do with poetry (except for last year) and that is why I don’t love it like other people. I believe that people who write poetry are intelligent, William Shakespeare, but I’m certainly not going to become a poet! I love comical poems for the reason that they are funny but apart from them I become outrageously bored. Therefore I don’t care much for poetry. – Nikki
