To The Evening Star by William Blake Thou fair-hair'd angel of the evening Now, whilst the sun rests on the mountains, light Thy bright torch of love; thy radiant crown Put on, and smile upon our evening bed! Smile on our loves, and, while thou drawest the Blue curtains of the sky, scatter thy silver dew On every flower that shuts its sweet eyes In timely sleep. Let the west wind sleep on The lake; speak silence with thy glimmering eyes And wash the dusk with silver. Soon, full soon, Dost thou withdraw; then the wolf rages wide, And then the lion glares through the dun forest; The fleeces of our flocks are cover'd with Thy sacred dew: protect them with thine influence!

Select TWO of the devices you identified in the preceding questions. Explain exactly what is being compared and how the poetic device functions in the context of the poem. Follow this example: "Angel of the evening" is a metaphor. Blake is comparing the evening star to an angel because it shines brightly in the sky and, he infers, it takes a compassionate interest, as an angel would, in the people on the earth below.
