They came like dewdrops overnight
Eating every plant in sight,
Those nasty worms with legs that crawl
So creepy up the garden wall,
Green prickly fuzz to hurt and sting
Each unsuspecting living thing.
How I hate them! Oh, you know
I’d love to squish them with my toe.
But then I see past their disguise,
Someday they’ll all be butterflies.

a break between words within a metrical foot
when a poem has lines ending with words that sound the same
a line break interrupting the middle of a phrase which continues on to the next line
a comparison between two unrelated things through a shared characteristic
a comparison between two unlike things using the words “like” or “as”
