Here are two lovely poems, both written by famous poets.
I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud
I wandered lonely as a cloud
That floats on high o'er vales and hills,
When all at once I saw a crowd,
A host, of golden daffodils;
Beside the lake, beneath the trees,
Fluttering and dancing in the breeze.
Continuous as the stars that shine
And twinkle on the milky way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.
by William Wordsworth
The clouds were gray all day.
At last they departed
And the blue diamonds shone again.
I watched the clouds float past and flow back
Like waves across the sea,
Waves that are foamy and soft,
When they hear clouds calling
Mother Sea, send up up your song
by Hilda Conkling
Both poems use figurative language which means words that describe something by comparing it to something else. Figurative language makes our senses react to words in the poem, as the words used make us feel as if we can hear, see, smell, touch or taste those things mentioned in the poem.
