Poetic Devices

Poetic devices are the key to compiling a well written poem. Without them a poem would be messy. Some poetic devices are metaphors, rhyme schemes, similes, imagery, alliterations, repitition, and personifications. Metaphors are direct comarisons, while simles are comparisons using like or as. Rhyme schemes are using a pattern of rhyming sounds. Repititions repeat sounds and words.
