Poetry Terms That Start with the Letter O


Ode - A serious and thoughtful lyric poem written in a formal structure.
Example: Ode On a Grecian Urn, by John Keats is a shining example that puts on display one of the most unique poetry terms.

Onomatopoeia - Speaking of unique poetry terms, words that are used to imitate sounds are termed onomatopoeia. Edgar Allan Poe was a master of onomatopoeia.
Example: ”The tintinnabulation that so musically wells / From the jingling and tinkling of the bells.”

Ottava rima - A type of poetry consisting of 8-line octaves composed of 10 or 11 lines each with the rhyme scheme abababcc.
