In line 3 “drum in dessert” is used as alliteration. That line uses alliteration because it is the occurrence of the same letter or sound at the beginning of adjacent or closely connected words. In “Making a Fist” there is not a rhyme scheme because it is a free verse. Naomi uses imagery as a way to help readers visualize the poem.

Author Meaning "...wanted wear..." is an interesting word choice from the author because it 's both personification and alliteration. Since I 'm using it as alliteration though the author is describing the way the path looks. The path is grassy and there is no designated walk way as if people walked there frequently.
Edith Matilda Thomas, in her vehement sonnet “Winter Leafage,” asserts that we should not “cling” to our past. To develop her claim, Thomas begins by first using imagery to describe a tree that refuses to let go of summer; the tree is “dry, wan, and shivering” in the winter weather because it is clothed in garments that are meant for the summer and this serves to show that by holding onto the past, we fail to live in the present; second, the tree is compared to a “palsied miser” and this reveals how pointless it is for the tree to be holding onto something that has passed; third, personification is used when the tree is said to “sigh, moan, and sing,” which makes a connection between the tree and humans so that it can better be understood that
In Beowulf, the structure is really how you perceive it.

(Kelley) Others view the whole story as three different sections or quests. This conclusion is drawn because he had three different monsters he had to defeat.
