    Rhythm is in everything; even people. As much as someone is convinced that they do not have rhythm, they do. Pay attention to the movement of your chest as you inhale and exhale; this is an example of rhythm. Rhythm can be easily described as a recurring pattern of movement or sound. According to our book, “rhythm can be defined as the particular arrangement of note lengths in a piece of music.” You can arrange any set of sounds rhythmically to create a music piece. Rhythm also has several subcategories which relate to one another to help get a better understanding of music and the making of it. The subcategories are beat, meter, and tempo.

    Runners take your mark! Get set! GO! No one has ever truly seen themselves through their own eyes. Mirrors exist to reflect our physical appearance but nothing beyond that. Only our actions, words, and ideas could possibly serve to create our identity. The true worth of a person is revealed in those glimpses of light in the midst of adversity and darkness. Those traits that are highly admired are also learned and acquired in those dark moments. It’s in my blood. It has always been there since…

    They both have different length. Stanza 1 has eleven lines and stanza 2 has thirteen lines. The rhyme scheme is as follows: AAABBCCDDEEFFGGHHHII. The poem has an iambic meter because after every stressed syllable there is an unstressed syllable. In line 1 for example: Take this kiss upon the brow!

The sonnet consisted of two stanzas, the octave (first eight lines) and the sestet (the final six lines), the form totaled 14 lines. The octave…

    The meter in the sonnet is in iambic pentameter. But the last line proclaiming that “[she] shall but love thee better after death” (14) is in iambic tetrameter, which signifies the ambiguity of the person and the time of their death.

    Often, movement is directly proportional to a person’s level of tranquility. If a person is moving quickly, then that person’s adrenaline levels are generally increased, meaning the person is not calm. On the other hand, a person who is moving very slowly tends to be calm, relaxed or even sedated.

Utilizing tools such as iambic meter and alliteration, the poet creates the calming rhythm…

    Although often overlooked, the form of a poem can be just as important as the words within it. Through careful analysis, a reader can start to piece together different aspects of a poem’s structure and directly relate it back to the overall content. In the poem My Papa’s Waltz, author Theodore Roethke deliberately uses form to create a child-like quality while at the same time mimicking the meter of a waltz, a usually slow and elegant dance that brings two people closer together. Moreover, in…
