In their writing poets use many tools. My favorites are rhyme and figurative language. I like rhyme because it's fun to hear and say. For example one of my favorite poets is Shel Silverstein. His poems are funny and they also have rhyming words. Another one of my favorites is alliteration. I like alliteration because it sounds cool and can also get people's attention. Tongue twisters are a form of alliteration and are very interesting. Personally I like to hear people say tongue twisters because it's funny because of how many times they make mistakes. I also like onomatopoeia because it describes sounds well. It creates a better picture of what's going on in the poem because I can hear what's going on.
