In poetry, an apostrophe is a figure of speech in which the poetaddresses an absent person, an abstract idea, or a thing. Apostrophesare found throughout poetry, but they’re less common since the early20th century. Poets may apostrophize a beloved, the Muse, God, love,time, or any other entity that can’t respond in reality.

Triple posts for emphasis.
This will be covered in tomorrow's Senior Citizens Creative Writing class. I send out a monthly notice of what we're to study; tomorrow it will be Parataxis, Apostrophe, and Janus words. Then, we do a gentle critique of members' writing.
They love it!
Would that I could sit in on your class!
Will fill you in later, Dear! I send out a synopsis of points covered to members unable to attend.
