Poetic Device #3: Simile

March 15, 2007

When we use a simile we say one that one thing is like or as something else.  We all use similes without realizing it.

For example:

  • He’s as thick as a tree.
  • She’s got a face like the back of a bus.
  • I was shaking like a leaf.

YOUR TASK: Think about our class.  What are we (altogether) like?  Write one simile and add it to the class poem that I will start things off with:
