Metaphors - Poem by Philip Winchester

: Metaphors 083

Metaphoric command well worth the poets bother,
Embellishments to add beauty to the dullest line,
Transfer the meaning of one word upon another,
A ttributes to the mundane verse composed,
Poetic licence so distorted, exposed to naked view,
Hyperbolic magnification to one single theme,
Outworn cliches mixing Metaphors old or new.
Rhetoric seen to pack out each and every line
Souls protect us when smilies refuse to rhyme.

    Well Done. I think you could make a poem out of most anything. Keep up the good work. I should probably take this advice. 10+

    I have a second Pride poem entitled 'Pride, My Friend' read and comment if you may or if you might have the will, tonight. Thanks in advance.
