What sound devices are in The Little Turtle The Little Turtle by Vachel Lindsay There was a little turtle. He lived in a box. He swam in a puddle. He climbed on the rocks. He snapped at a mosquito He snapped at a flea. He snapped at a minnow.

And he snapped at me. He caught the mosquito He caught the flea. He caught the minnow. But he didnt catch me. Forms of Poetry

Sonnet 14 lines CAT VERSUS by Tasha Guenther My cat stares blankly at the wall Trying to hunt the light. She flicks her tail and starts to crawl, Eyes focused, fur upright. I watch her, silently, as she creeps Slowly towards her prey.

I remain still, as if fast asleep For this is not childs play. Her moving stops, she is ready To jump up and attack. I see her ascend, now unsteady; I gasp, and she looks back. Her eyes are chasms, black holes throughout, And my flashlight goes quickly out.

Free Verse Me by Walter de la Mare As long as I live I shall always be My Self and no other, Just me. Like a tree. Willow, elder, Aspen, thorn,
