Types of Poetry

For those who want to earn or improve their poetry writing skills, these are just a few types I have written, following the definitions on Shadow Poetry.com.  . I would just be giving the examples for the lessons based on the word of God, These will be, Purpose-driven prophetic, didactic etc as the case may be.  For definitions, I would counsel you to go to go to the link given.

Whereas structure is important in poetry, the language and literary devices such as alliteration, similes, metaphors, assonance, contrasts, pun, drama, repetition, synonyms etc are equally important, so I will be looking at these also.

 Contributions are welcome from readrs or students

Lesson 3 Anaphorah

Anaphora

Repetition of a line or phrase in

Those who believe in you

Will not be put to shame

 Jesus Christ is ever the same.

He is faithful and true

If you said it, it must be true.

Those who go out with precious seeds

Sowing, weeping, mourning, praying

Trusting, enduring, waiting and giving

Will have a harvest meeting all their needs

If you said it, it must be true.

Those who are in Christ are new creatures

 The old has gone away

They now walk  in the New and Living Way

In God’s hands lies their future

If you said it, it must be true

Your Word is powerful, dynamic, living

Medicine to the body, a light to one’s path
