Identify the figurative language used in these stanzas of Amy Lowell's "In Excelsis." In complete sentences, explain how it is used to convey meaning in the poem. You are frozen as the clouds, You are far and sweet as the high clouds. I dare reach to you, I dare touch the rim of your brightness. I leap beyond the winds, I cry and shout, For my throat is keen as a sword Sharpened on a hone of ivory. My throat sings the joy of my eyes, The rushing gladness of my love.

Lowell is using similes to help describe the person she is writing to/about. For example "far and sweet and high as the clouds" could mean that the speaker has strong amorous feelings about the subject but feels that he or she is out of reach or out of the speakers league. Does that help? If you need help with the other lines just let me know
