Can anyone suggest poems that particularly exemplify rhyme, rythme, imagery, personification and metaphor for teaching purposes.

Try any sections from the wondrous Fairie Queene by Edmund Spenser. Yes.

The Soldier - Robert Frost

He is that fallen lance that lies as hurled,
That lies unlifted now, come dew, come rust,
But still lies pointed as it ploughed the dust.
If we who sight along it round the world,
See nothing worthy to have been its mark,
It is because like men we look too near,
Forgetting that as fitted to the sphere,
Our missiles always make too short an arc.
They fall, they rip the grass, they intersect
The curve of earth, and striking, break their own;
They make us cringe for metal-point on stone.
But this we know, the obstacle that checked
And tripped the body, shot the spirit on
Further than target ever showed or shone.

Many thanks
I posted for a friend who is training as an english teacher in Edinburgh. I'm sure she will appreciate the responses.
