    the poet's love. However, each of the works has differing examples of figurative language as well.

Additionally, the verse, "the powerful play goes on" is a metaphor for life, and there is no metaphor within Burn's poem. In conclusion, figurative language is an essential element of poetry, and these two poems use it…
