The book, with infantile poems, was dedicated its children. Vincius, poet of the love and of deeper sensuality, was perhaps not adjusted to speak to the children, however, when making it, the naivety reencontrou and left to be taken by the playful one, indispensable combination for the success. The Infantile poetry is made of ludicidade, simplicity and rhythm, having made with that the child comes back to its proper world. It is what we observe in a first reading of the poem. The poet uses the Onomatopia (tic-tac) to give to rhythm and sonorous effect to the poem. This repetition throughout the text finishes making of the noise a great trick.
(Tic-tac) it reproduces the next possible sound to the clock, therefore we classify this sound as a pure Onomatopia. This is one of the resources expressive more used in the infantile poetries, therefore they concentrate the melody, the harmony and the rhythm of the phrase, serving to produce this effect special. What it differs a Onomatopia from the Aliterao is that this suggests a sound and the Onomatopia imitates. Still saying of rhythm the author, to mark the compass of the poem, it uses the commas. They serve, in this in case that, to mark the pauses in the text, what it makes in to remember them the hand of the seconds dislocating itself. How much to the lexical choice, we can observe that the author looked for to use words that throughout the text go if relating to the proper heading of the poem, the Clock. For example: time, hour, are slow, day, night. This choice almost always is made propositalmente.
We still observe a sensible fort of opposition how much to the job of the words. We start for the proper Onomatopia (tic-tac). Fonemas /i/ and /a/ if opposes a time that /i/ is closed and /a/ is opened.
