metaphoris a figure of speech in which a word or phrase is used in a non-literal way to describe something else. Metaphors help the reader get a deeper understanding of the situation the author is trying to convey. You will see how Dickinson almost makes you feel and experience the sunrise and sunset with words only. Watch the lesson to learn more about how to analyse a poem and also improve your reading and writing skills.

Dear Jill, but what does “the bobolinks begun” mean? Why is the participle II and no object?
Is it an ellipsis when words are deliberately left out of a sentence?
Oh, sorry, I just realised I spelled your name wrong, Gill!
Thanks Ms Gill, I thank the best way to memorize more vocabulary, that could be with help of poetry!
