Poetic Device #3: SimileMarch 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.
- 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:
WE ARE AS NOISY AS A THUNDERSTORM IN JULY.
