dVerse Poets Pub Tuesday Poetics ~ Anaphora / Repetition


Sarah hosted dVerse’ Poetics on Tuesday.
Sarah said: Wikipedia says: anaphora(Greek: ἀναφορά, “carrying back”) is a rhetorical device that consists of repeating a sequence of words at the beginnings of neighboring clauses, thereby lending them emphasis.

“I’d like you to pick one of these verbs as the repeating verb:
•remember           dream                    eat                      choose
•love                       fear                         hope                  paint            lose

Remember, these go at the START of the clause”

I remember the days working at school from 6:30 am until 2:30 pm.
I remember the joy I felt when a student had a light bulb moment.
I remember the fun I had developing lessons that would keep the students engaged.
I remember the late nights correcting papers adding encouraging notes.
I remember designing rubrics so there was no question how to complete projects.
I remember playing games with my students to review for tests and tossing Smarties candies when they got the answer right.
I remember going to thrift stores to find materials to use in my classroom.
I remember attending science conferences that provided great ideas for additions to my programs.
I remember the best of times, because they far outweighed the less than best.
