Help! Poetry - Year 7

Discussion in 'English' started by 00nh10, Feb 6, 2011.

  1. Can anyone recommend a poem to use as a year 7 assessment which includes a wide range of poetic techniques?
    I have taught them about simile, metaphor, onomatopoeia, personification and alliteration.
    What I need is a good poem which is not too long that includes examples of all of these. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you.
