Paul Revers ride Project

Three poetry terms

1) Imagery- An the twitter of the birds among the trees, And felt the breath of the morning air. It is imagery because it paints a picture in you head of what it looks like there.


2) rhyme scheme- Meanwhile , his friend, through ally and street, Wanders and watches with eager ears, Till in the silence around him he hears, ... It is a rhyme scheme because at the end of the second and third line they rhyme.


3) subject- ... On the opposite side walked Paul Revere,..., This is the subject because the poem is all about Paul Revere and him delivering the message.
