The present study applies one branch of linguistics, namely discourse analysis, it examines The lexical cohesion and it is impact on meaning and the cohesion of the text. It particularly analyzes the Arabic poetry through poetic samples by Al Mutanabbi. The study examines selected samples of Al Mutanabbi's poetry. These samples are including four poetic genres, namely, panegyric, elegy, glory, and satire. The study develops a framework drawing on Drawing on Halliday and Hassan's framework, the newly developed framework would allow researchers to consider other aspects as tale-head, and homeopoton and paying more attention to characteristics of Arabic language by considering the alliteration as separate stylistic device rather than including it as a type of sound repetition. It is therefore hoped that the newly framework will bridge the gap between theory and application in this particular area and provide recommendations for future practice.
