|Overall impression: This is a fun poem about pirates. It is well written. Good word choices that provide a visual picture: scour, pillage, dread, crackle, wail, eerie.
Structure: This is a Quatrain poem of seven stanzas.
Rhyme: The rhyme is aabb and is good for the most part. There are a few places where is not exact.
Rhythm: Very good rhythm that flows well
Poetic devices: There is good use of alliteration in line 2, L 8, L 17.
There is also good use of consonance: Line 7 day Line 8 play L 11 way. Line 9 price L 10 nice. L 13 share L 14 fare. L 15 creep L16 deep. L 21 bed L 22 dread.
There is good imagery in L 3, 4, 5, 6, 20, 23, 24
Metaphor – L 15 waves blanket and creep – this paints such a vivid picture. It is one of my favorite parts of the poem.
