Poem

posted by .

She was a Phantom of delight
When first she gleamed upon my sight;
A lovely Apparition, sent
To be a moment's ornament;
Her eyes as stars of Twilight fair; [5]
Like Twilight's, too, her dusky hair;
But all things else about her drawn
From May-time and the cheerful Dawn;
A dancing Shape, an Image gay,
To haunt, to startle, and way-lay


The first line represents a metaphor right?

lines 3 and 4 represent shows which of the following?
Her presence was a fleeting gift.
She was like a bauble that beautified his life.
Her presence was actually an illusion.
She seemed more spiritual than real.
Her presence ended with death.
I was stuck between the first two. But now i feel its the second one because he is complimenting her and she wont go away.

does the last line an example of an litote because its an understatement.

Lastly lines 5 and 6 is an example of a simile right?
