Poetry Terms

Tone:bravery E.X."A shape in the moonlight,a bulk in the dark,\And beneath, from pebbles, in passing spark\ Struck out by a steed flying fearless and fleet:\That was all!" That is bravery because he had to ride a bunch of villages to let people know the British are coming and it and there was a chance of him dying.



Subject:Paul Revere E.X. "Listen my children, and you shall hear\Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere..."The subject is Paul Revere because it is a very famous and historical thing that he did.


Imagery:E.X."Then he said, good night! and with muffled oar\Silently rowed to the Charleston shore,\Just as the moon rose over the bay,\Where swinging wide at her moorings lay\The somerset , British man-of-war;\A phantom ship, with each mast and spar\Across the moon like a prison bar,\And a huge black hulk, that was magnified\By it's own reflection in the tide."that is imagery because it paints a picture in your head.

The Star-Spangled Banner

by Francis Scott Key
O say, can you see, by the dawn's early light, What so proudly we hailed at the twilight's last gleaming? Whose broad stripes and bright stars through the perilous fight, O'er the ramparts we watched were so gallantly streaming; And the rocket's red glare, the bombs bursting in air, Gave proof through the night that our flag was still there; O say, does that star-spangled banner yet wave O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave? On the shore dimly seen through the mists of the deep, Where the foe's haughty host in dread silence reposes, What is that which the breeze, o'er the towering steep, As it fitfully blows, now conceals, now discloses? Now it catches the gleam of the morning's first beam, In full glory reflected now shines on the stream; 'Tis the star-spangled banner; O long may it wave O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave! And where is that band who so vauntingly swore That the havoc of war and the battle's confusion A home and a country should leave us no more? Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps' pollution. No refuge could save the hireling and slave, From the terror of flight and the gloom of the grave; And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave! O! thus be it ever, when freemen shall stand Between their loved homes and the war's desolation! Blest with victory and peace, may the heav'n-rescued land, Praise the power that hath made and preserved us a nation. Then conquer we must, for our cause it is just. And this be our motto— "In God is our trust; " And the star-spangled banner in triumph shall wave O'er the land of the free, and the home of the brave. - See more at: http://www.poets.org/viewmedia.php/prmMID/19379#sthash.okGYq7QQ.dpuf
