    a bare bough weighed with snow is a tree limb so yes that is an image now the night is darkening round me is not an image neither is waste beyond waste but clouds above clouds is more of a metaphoric image meaning there are different cloud heights like stratosphereic clouds are higher than any of the other clouds

    Yes, the first two are examples of imagery.

    And yes, the second two are examples of hyperbole (exaggeration).
