What do you mean by elements? Do you just mean stuff like metaphors and alliteration?

The birch tree in winter
Leaning over the secret pool
Is Narcissus in love
With the slight white branches,
The slim trunk,
In the dark glass;
But,
Spring coming on,
Is afraid,
And scarfs the white limbs
In green

Tool - Lateralus

Black then white are all I see in my infancy.
red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.
lets me see.
As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
drawn beyond the lines of reason.
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.
Withering my intuition, missing opportunities and I must
Feed my will to feel my moment drawing way outside the lines.

Black then white are all I see in my infancy.
red and yellow then came to be, reaching out to me.
lets me see there is so much more
and beckons me to look through to these infinite possibilities.
As below, so above and beyond, I imagine
drawn outside the lines of reason.
Push the envelope. Watch it bend.

Over thinking, over analyzing separates the body from the mind.
Withering my intuition leaving all these opportunities behind.

Feed my will to feel this moment urging me to cross the line.
Reaching out to embrace the random.
Reaching out to embrace whatever may come.

I embrace my desire to
feel the rhythm, to feel connected
enough to step aside and weep like a widow
to feel inspired, to fathom the power,
to witness the beauty, to bathe in the fountain,
to swing on the spiral
of our divinity and still be a human.

With my feet upon the ground I lose myself
between the sounds and open wide to suck it in,
I feel it move across my skin.
I'm reaching up and reaching out,
I'm reaching for the random or what ever will bewilder me.
And following our will and wind we may just go where no one's been.
We'll ride the spiral to the end and may just go where no one's been.

Spiral out. Keep going, going...
Sail upon the open skies

Like rhyme, alliteration, and symbolism, perhaps? I betcha there's tons of stuff out there. Start digging, because I'm to useless to help.

Panasonic Youth by TDEP

We wrote these plans took the order the architecture and followed them to the end until the gears ground cold and relentless there was no remorse we had none we kept on with no trace of a regret I never saw any blood no soul for the body watch them turn her scab covered skin into stone like a coal in the sky searching for the dawn for the last time bloated with white eyes wide we've come to an understanding you lose I profit high noon and there ain't no secrets no more excuses now our number's up let them lead us by the throat now just smile while the rope pulls tighter guilty is an understatement the hourglass is never right side up and all the time we try to tear the script up forgetting all the sour for the sweet the paragraph has never been so empty the mother dies with infant in arms the lifeless test tube, look what she's done evolution gave us a clock that's always winding down

How bout Rime of the Ancient Mariner - Iron Maiden?

Several parts of that song are taken directly from the poem, loads of rhymes, some hyperboles, similes, etc.
