Examples of Figurative Language in "Paul Revere's Ride"

DESCRIPTION EXAMPLE
Personification Giving human-like characteristics to non-human objects or abstract ideas The watchful night-wind, as it went;
Creeping along from tent to tent,
And seeming to whisper, "All is well!"
Simile A comparison using 'like' or 'as' A phantom ship, with each mast and spar;
Across the moon like a prison bar
Metaphor An implied comparison between two things And the spark struck out, by that steed, in his flight;
Kindled the land into flame with its heat
