Metaphor a figure of speech description of something as if it were something else, thereby enhancing our insight.

Rhythm the varying speed, intensity, elevation, pitch, loudness, and expressiveness of speech, especially poetry.

Symbol: a specific word, idea or object that may stand for ideas, values, persons, or ways of life.

Denotation: the literal or primary meaning.

Connotation: Layers of suggestion that words acquire through usage.  Connotation is partly personal which is why no two readers read the same poem.
