Paul Revere's Ride
By Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
Ex: "Just as the moon rose over the bay, where swinging wide at her moorings way"
The words, "bay" and "way" rhyme. This can also be called rhyme scheme.
This story also includes metaphors. A metaphor is a direct comparison without using "like" or "as."
Ex: "Phantom ship" is used to describe the British ship.
Another poetry term I have spotted in this poem is alliteration, which is the repetition of consonants sounds.
Ex: "....a Huge black hulk..." The letter "H" is a consonant and it's the beginning of two words in this line.
A story by Washington Irving
The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow
Like the poem, Paul Revere's Ride, this story also is about someone on a horse that rides at night. Another thing that both stories have in common is that they both have a dark and mysterious tone.
