¨Listen my children and you shall hear / Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere¨ This is an example of rhyme throughout the poem because ¨hear¨ and ¨Revere¨ end in the same sound.
¨A phantom ship, with each mast and spar / Across the moon like a prison bar¨ This is a simile because it uses the word ¨like¨ to compare a ship´s mast to a prison bar.
"All is well!"
"That was all! And yet through the gloom and the night / The fate of a nation was riding that night" This is a metaphor because the author of the poem is saying that Paul Revere is the fate of a nation, when in reality he is just a very patriotic man.
"Beneath, in the churchyard, lay the dead / In their night-encampment on the hill" These lines are an example of tone because upon first reading them, the reader gets a sense of eeriness.
"The watchful night-wind, as it went / Creeping along from tent to tent / And seeming to whisper, 'All is well!'" This is an example of personification because a night wind cannot whisper actual words.
"A line of black, that bends and floats / On the rising tide, like a bridge of boats" This is an example of alliteration because the words "bridge" and "boats" both start with the same sound.
