POEM HELP PLEASE HELP WILL MEDAL! Which form and poetic device does the author use in this stanza? Our life should feed the springs of fame With a perennial wave, As ocean feeds the babbling founts Which find it in their grave (from "Away! Away! Away! Away!" by Henry David Thoreau) open form and hyperbole couplet and paradox free verse and metaphor end rhyme and simile
