Paul Reveres Midnight Ride
By: Henry Wideworth Longfellow
- End Rhyme- I chose this one because in every line the rhyme is at the end of the line.
"Listen, my children, and you shall hear/ Of the midnight ride of Paul Revere,..."
2. Imagery- I chose this one because when i was reading this line i could picture this in my head.
"Meanwhile, impatient to mount and ride, / Booted and spurred, with a heavy stride..."
3. Idiom- I chose this one because when it says "cry of alarm" it doesn't really mean that he was crying.
"So through the night rode Paul Revere; / And so through the night went his cry of alarm..."
This is a picture of him warning everyone to wake up because the British was approaching.
This is a picture of Paul Revere.
This is a statue of Paul Revere riding on the horse.
Courage by:Corey Fauchon
Courage is what divides us
Courage is what drives us
Courage is what stops us
Courage creates news
Courage demands more
Courage creates blame
Courage brings shame
Courage shows in school
Courage determines the cool
Courage divides the weak
Courage pours out like a leak
Courage puts us on a knee
Courage makes us free
Courage makes us plea
- This poem and Paul Reveres midnight ride poem have a connection because of courage. In Paul Reveres ride he showed courage because of got caught he probably would have got shot and killed or something. Also because in the poem above it talks about courage drives you to do something and if Paul Revere didn't have courage he wouldn't have rode and we might have been under British control today.
"Courage is what divides us/ Courage is what drives us..."
