Basic Tools of the Poet
Some of the tools poets use are figurative language, rhythm, and the tone of the poem. Figuritive language refers to similes, metaphors, symbols, allusions, imagery, irony, etc.; the poet might paint a picture in your mind using figurative language. The rhythm is the flow of the poem. Take "The Highway Man" for example, it has a specific rhythm that makes your voice go up and down creating a better flow. The tone of the poem is how the words create the mood that you sense. Say a poem is happy, you will normally recite it in an elated tone. If the poem is depressing and horrible you would use a negative tone, or you wouldn’t read it at all. These tools are quintessential to make a good poem.
