We're studying a Dickinson poem Wild Nights--

I have a question
Wild Nights--Wild Night!
Were I with thee
1. Is that an example of an internal rhyme, slant rhyme, alliteration or caesura?

2. The poem has two stanzas that are ABBA and then two ABCB and ABCB
What best describes the rhyme scheme?
heroic couplets, slant rhyme or abba
I know its a slant rhyme but what best describes it-should I go on the rhyme scheme of ABCB or slant rhyme

    I know the answer for the second one-it is ABCB but I'm not sure what that other website was suppose to tell me- I read it but I still have a question about number 1-Wild Night! Wild Night! I've eliminated internal rhyme but I'm not sure is that an example of caesura? I don't think it is slant rhyme
    Any suggestions
