  • 11. The Sun It’s like a shining shimmering sphere, floating up high in the sky. It slides towards the horizon as it moves on it’s way through the day. First a few rays, cutting through the haze, then it bursts into view to warm me and you. Slowly blinking, then sinking, it fades, melts away. Don’t worry or fret, it’s not over yet. It returns not long after the moon and that’s fairly soon. A. Gore What poetry technique has been used here?

  • 12. imagery Well-chosen words that help the reader to appreciate what has been seen, smelt, heard, felt or tasted e.g. the clouds were low and hairy, the roar of trees, a scent of ripeness from over a wall. Next
  • 13. Now to write your own poems: Kennings
    • A kenning is a much-compressed form of metaphor, originally used in Anglo-Saxon and Norse poetry. In a kenning, an object is described in a two-word phrase, such as 'whale-road' for 'sea'. Some kennings can be more obscure than others, and then grow close to being a riddle. Judith Nicholls' 'Bluebottle' uses kennings as part of a larger poem, that is itself a riddle.
    Next
  • 14. Bluebottle
    • Who dips, dives
    • Swoops out of space,
    • A buzz in his wings
    • And sky on his face
    • Now caught in the light,
    • Now gone without trace,
    • A sliver of glass,
    • Never still in one place?
    • Who’s elusive as a pickpocket,
    • Lord of the flies;
    • Who moves like a rocket,
    • Bound for the skies?
    • Who’s catapult, aeroplane,
    • Always full throttle?
    • Sky-diver, Jumping Jack,
    • Comet, bluebottle!
