Philip Winchester

(1942 / Surrey United Kingdom)

Metaphors


: 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.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
