Storyboard Text

  • Assonance
  • April 18th, 1775
  • Simile
  • "One if by land, two if by sea!"
  • Alliteration
  • In line 5 of the poem, there is assonance. The line says, "Who remembers that famous day and year." The assonance is "famous day" because of the A sound. 
  • Personification
  • "All is well!"
  • In line 21 there is a simile. It says, "Across the moon like a prison bar." This is a simile because a ship is being compared to a prison using the word "like."
  • Metaphor
  • In line 25,  the alliteration is, "Wanders and watches, with eager ears." There is alliteration with the W and with the E.
  • Rhyme   
  • "The watchful night-wind, as it went Creeping along from tent to tent  And seeming to whisper, "All is well!" (46-48) is personification because wind was given to ability to creep along and to whisper, which are things humans can do that wind cannot do.
  • Lines 80-81 are, "And the spark struck out by that steed, in his flight, Kindled the land into flame with its heat" and they show a metaphor because the horse was riding so fast that it was almost as if it started a fire. In this example, there is no "like" or "as" used, because that would make it a simile.
  • Throughout the whole poem, there is rhyme.  Just one example is in the first two lines of the poem where it says, "Listen my children and you shall hear Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere." There is rhyme with "hear" and "Revere" because they have the same ending sound.
