    These are the poems we will deal with in the second semester
    Like a Star @ heaven Tutorial one

    Arrow Who goes with Fergus? by W. B. Yeats

    Who will go drive with Fergus now,
    And pierce the deep wood's woven shade,
    And dance upon the level shore?
    Young man, lift up your russet brow,
    And lift your tender eyelids, maid,
    And brood on hopes and fear no more.

    And no more turn aside and brood
    Upon love's bitter mystery;
    For Fergus rules the brazen cars,
    And rules the shadows of the wood,
    And the white breast of the dim sea
    And all dishevelled wandering stars.

    Arrow "Recital” by John Updike

    Eskimos in Manitoba,
    Barracuda off Aruba,
    Cock an ear when Roger Bobo
    Starts to solo on the tuba.

    Men of every station -- Pooh-Bah,
    Nabob, bozo, toff, and hobo --
    Cry in unison, "Indubi-
    Tably, there is simply nobo-

    Dy who oompahs on the tubo,
    Solo, quite like Roger Bubo!

    Arrow A Slumber Did My Spirit Seal by William Wordsworth

    A slumber did my spirit seal;
    I had no human fears:
    She seemed a thing that could not feel
    The touch of earthly years.
    No motion has she now, no force;
    She neither hears nor sees;
    Rolled round in earth's diurnal course
    With rocks, and stones, and trees

    Arrow "Eight O'clock" by Houssam

    He stood, and heard the steeple
    Sprinkle the quarters on the morning town.
    One, two, three, four, to market-place and people
    It tossed them down.

    Strapped, noosed, nighing his hour,
    He stood and counted them and cursed his luck;
    And then the clock collected in the tower
    Its strength, and struck

    Arrow Upon Julia's Voice

    When I thy singing next shall hear,
    I'll wish I might turn all to ear,
    To drink-in notes and numbers, such
    As blessed souls can't hear too much
    Then melted down, there let me lie
    Entranced, and lost confusedly;
    And by thy music strucken mute,
    Die, and be turn'd into a Lute

    Arrow The splonder falls by Alfred, Lord Tennyson

    The splendor falls on castle walls
    and snowy summits old in story;
    The long light shakes across the lakes,
    and the wild cataract leaps in glory.
    Blow bugle blow, set the wild echoes flying,
    blow bugle; Answer, echoes, Dying, Dying, Dying.
    O Hark, O Hear! How thin and clear, and thinner,
    clearer farther going!
    O Sweet and far from cliff
    and scar the horns of Elfand faintly blowing!
    Blow, let us hear the purple glens replying;
    Blow, bugle; Answer, echoes, Dying, Dying, Dying.
    Love, they die in yon rich sky,
    they faint on hill or field or riverour echoes roll
    from soul to soul, and grow for ever and forever.
    Blow Bugle blow, set the wild echoes flying,
    and answer, echoes, answer, Dying, Dying, Dying

    Like a Star @ heaven Tutorial two we will deal with those four concepts:
    *Initial alliteration
    *Internal alliteration or hidden alliteration

    Arrow Alliteration is the repetition of initial sounds in neighboring words:
    Example: sweet smell of success, a dime a dozen, bigger and better, jump for joy

    The matching or repetition of consonants is called alliteration, or the repeating of the same letter (or sound) at the beginning of words following each other immediately or at short intervals!

    The ancient poets often used alliteration instead of rhyme, for example; alliteration is in every line :
    " Now Beowulf bode in the burg of the Scyldings, Leader beloved, and long he ruled In fame with all folk since his father had gone ..."

    Modern poets also avail themselves of alliteration, especially as a substitute for rhyme ex:
    She left the Heaven of Heroes and came down To make a man to meet the mortal need A man to match the mountains and the sea The friendly welcome of the wayside well !

    Like rhyme, alliteration is a great help to memory. It is powerful a device that prose has borrowed it. It is the alliteration which makes us remember such phrases as: "sink or swim," "do or die," "fuss and feathers," "the more the merrier," "watchful waiting," "poor but proud," "hale and hearty," "green as grass," "live and learn," "money makes the mare go."

    While alliteration is the recurrence of single letter-sounds, there is another kind of recurrence which is the echo or repetition of a word or phrase. This is found in many kinds of poetry, from nonsense rhymes to ballads. The repeated words or syllables add an extra beat and accentuate the rhythm. They are often heard in "choruses" or "refrains,"
    Excellent use of repetition occurs through this example:
    Come down to Kew in lilac-time, in lilac-time, in lilac-time;
    Come down to Kew in lilac-time (it isn't far from London!)
    And you shall wander hand in hand with love in summer's wonderland;
    Come down to Kew in lilac-time (it isn't far from London!)

    Arrow ALLITERATION--the repetition of sounds in nearby words; usually the term is used to refer to "initial alliteration," the repetition of sounds at the beginnings of words or syllables, but it can also refer to "internal alliteration," also called "hidden alliteration," where the repeated sounds occur within words or syllables. Sometimes "alliteration" is used to refer to either vowel or consonant sounds, but sometimes it is reserved for repeated consonant sounds.

    ASSONANCE--a form of alliteration, in which the repeated sounds are vowel sounds rather than consonants

    Like a Star @ heaven The second week

    The types of Rime :

    1. Rime: having identical vowel sounds and consonant sounds, depending not on the spelling, but the sound. Sleigh/hay

    2. Exact Rime: red/bread; walk/talk; wink/think

    3. Slant rime: moved/loved; widow/shadow

    4. Eye Rime: rough/dough; flea/idea; Venus/menus

    5. End Rime: Last word of lines rime

    Do you want to skate?

    Or would you rather bake?

    6. Internal Rime: Within one line, there is some rhyming of words

    Oh, to bake a chocolate cake,

    Oh, to skate when last I wake.

    7. Masculine Rime: rhyme of one-syllable word (cake/bake) or if two-syllable words, then the stress is on the final syllable of word (support/retort) *usually creates a harsher, quick sound effect

    8. Feminine Rime: rhyme of two or more syllables with the stress on any syllable but the last
    (turtle/fertile; flatter/batter)

    The suggested poems:
    Arrow The Hippopotamus

    I shoot the Hippopotamus
    With bullets made of platinum,
    Because if I use leaden ones
    His hide is sure to flatten 'em.

    Hilaire Belloc

    Arrow God’s Grandeur” by Gerard Manley Hopkins

    THE WORLD is charged with the grandeur of God.
    It will flame out, like shining from shook foil,
    It gathers to a greatness like the ooze of oil
    Crushed. Why do men then now not reck His rod?
    Generations have trod, have trod, have trod;
    And all is seared with trade; bleared, smeared with toil;
    And bears man’s smudge, and shares man’s smell; the soil
    Is bare now, nor can foot feel being shod.
    And for all this, nature is never spent;
    There lives the dearest freshness deep down things;
    And though the last lights from the black west went,
    Oh, morning at the brown brink eastwards springs—
    Because the Holy Ghost over the bent
    World broods with warm breast, and with, ah, bright wings
