Repetition can be used in poetry in many ways. You can repeat a sound like a long o sound or an l or t sound. You can repeat a word several times in the poem like the word “bells” in a famous poem by Edgar Allan Poe. You can repeat a phrase or a whole line. Or you can repeat a verse like the refrain in a song.
Choose a way to repeat from the list above and write a poem that uses some repetition.
