"The hurrying hoof-beats of that steed, And the midnight message of Paul Revere." (stanza 13, line 129) This is an example of onomatopoeia because it has the use of words that imitate the sound of horse feet stampeding.

"fired and fled" (stanza 12 line 112) A sound device is what poets use to delight the ear. In this case, these two words show an example of alliteration because "fired" and "feared" start with the same letter.
"He heard the crowing of the cock / And the barking of the farmer's dog / And felt the damp of the river fog" (stanza 9, lines 88-90) This is an example of imagery because the author is telling what Paul Revere hears and feels.
"And a huge black hulk, that it was magnified / By its own reflection in the tide." (stanza 3 line 22-23) The meaning of this metaphor is that the ships that the British arrived in were so big and it was dark out so they looked like a big black hulk.
"Ready to ride" (stanza 2 line 12) An assonance is the repetition of similar sounds and the "r" is repeating in this quote. This metaphor is explaining that the ships that the brisish arrived in were so big that it looked like a black hulk because it was dark out.
