.

Alliteration: Two or more words which have the same initial sound. Peter Piper Picked a Peck of Pickled peppers . . .

Assonance: The repetition or a pattern of similar sounds, as in the tongue twister "Moses supposes his toeses are roses."

Diction: Refers to both the choice and the order of words.

Enjambment: the continuation of a sentence from one line or couplet into the next.
'I think that I shall never see/
A poem as lovely as a tree'

Image: poetic imagery alters or shapes the way we see what the poem is describing.

Metaphor: A comparison which does not use the words like or as. 'drowning in debt'

Meter: Meter is the rhythm established by a poem, and it is usually dependent not only on the number of syllables in a line but also on the way those syllables are accented.

Onomatopoeia: Words that sound like their meaning. For example, buzz, moo, pow.

Repetitions: The repetition of the same word throughout the poem to emphasize significance.

Rhyme: The basic definition of rhyme is two words that sound alike. The repetition of sounds within different words, either end sound, middle or beginning.

Rhythm: The flow of words within each meter and stanza.

Simile: A comparison using the words like or as.

Style: The way the poem is written.

Symbol: Something that represents something else through association, resemblance or convention

Theme: The message, point of view and idea of the poem.

Tone: The tone of a poem is equivalent to the mood it creates.

Word Order: For clarity of meaning (a solo guitar isn't the same as a guitar solo) and sometimes for effect (a likeable fellow is roughly the same as a fellow well liked). So you see the execution of the word order is important.
