Example of Poetry in Music

Rhyme
When words have the same end sound

They once were terrified

Every time I looked into their eyes

Villagers would cheer my way

For a hero I was, that's what they'd say

One minute we had it all

Next our world began to fall

Away from all that it had once become

They all cried for my help, but I stood there numb

Repetition

Repeating a word or words for effect


I gaze off into the boundless skyline

Noteblock choirs playing in the sunshine

Turn 'round pick up my sword and wield

The blade that once forced evil mobs to yield

If this battle should leave me slain

I know that Herobrine calls my name

Better to take a stand

And that was when I ruled the land

I gaze off into the boundless skyline

Noteblock choirs playing in the sunshine

Turn 'round pick up my sword and wield

The blade that once forced evil mobs to yield

If this battle should leave me slain

I know that Herobrine calls my name

Onomatopoeia

When a words pronunciation imitates a sound


It was the creepers and Skeletons

Blew down the doors and boxed us in

Arrows whizzing by like streaks of light

I tried all that I could to stay and fight
