The term “anaphora” comes from the Greek and refers to a type of repetition when successive phrases or lines begin with the same words. Often used in political speeches and occasionally in prose and poetry. Dr. Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream”, speech is the most famous example.

She keeps coming back in different guises.

She inspires me to write.
I love Anna Fora,
She always appears when I expect her.
I love Anna Fora,
She is so originally repetitive.
