Read this line from the poem: And it passed, like a glorious roll of drums, What is the effect of this simile on the mood of the poem? A. It elevates the mood by conveying a sense of power. B. It intensifies the mood by evoking horror and suspense. C. It elevates the mood by depicting heroism in grief. D. It intensifies the mood by emphasizing pain. from "The Slave's Dream" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow At night he heard the lion roar, And the hyena scream, And the river-horse, as he crushed the reeds Beside some hidden stream; And it passed, like a glorious roll of drums, Through the triumph of his dream. The forests, with their myriad tongues, Shouted of liberty; And the Blast of the Desert cried aloud, With a voice so wild and free, That he started in his sleep and smiled At their tempestuous glee. He did not feel the driver's whip, Nor the burning heat of day; For Death had illumined the Land of Sleep, And his lifeless body lay A worn-out fetter, that the soul Had broken and thrown away!

    Well now you know. It's kinda hard to explain why it's lamenting, but hopefully you know a little bit more why now.
