Simile Poetry
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     You know what a simile is. It compares two things that aren't alike. The things could be people, places, or objects. The simile says that this thing is like that thing. One might say that the lady's hair is like a cloud. A simile may also say that one thing is as "something" as another thing. Let's say that the lady's hair is as fluffy and white as a cloud. Hair and clouds aren't alike at all. Similes are interesting that way.
 
2     Did you know that a simile can be made into a poem? It's true! We can choose a subject and make similes to describe it.
 
3     Let's look around the classroom. I see a globe! A globe represents Earth. The globe is round like a ball. It spins like a top. I've already formed two similes. Did you notice? Let's see if we can shape those ideas into a simile poem.
