    • Alliteration- the recurrence of the same letter or sound at the start of two or more words that are closely related. Wheel’s kick and the wind’s song and the white sail’s shaking. To the gull’s way and the whale’s way where the wind’s like a whetted, A star to steer her by, Is a wild call and a clear call
    • Anaphora– It refers to the opening section of certain verses repeating a phrase or sentence. And I’ll ask
    • Imagery- Visually descriptive or figurative language. A tall ship and a star to steer, A grey dawn breaking. The sea-gulls crying. And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying, And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick’s over.

     

    • Symbolism- The use of symbols to represent ideas and characteristics by assigning them symbolic meanings that differ from their literal meanings is known as symbolism. I must go down to the seas again (referring to happiness, memories, adventure.)
