Poem: 1 It shall flash through coming ages,
2 It shall light the distant years;
3 And eyes now dim with sorrow
4 Shall be brighter through their tears.

5 It shall flush the mountain ranges,
6 And the valleys shall grow bright;
7 It shall bathe the hills in radiance,
8 And crown their brows with light.

9 It shall flood with golden splendor
10 All the huts of Caroline;
11 And the sun-kissed brow of labor
12 With lustre new shall shine.

13 It shall gild the gloomy prison,
14 Darkened by the nation's crime,
15 Where the and patient millions
16 Wait the better-coming time.

17 By the light that gilds their prison
18 They shall see its mouldering key;
19 And the bolts and bars shall vibrate
20 With the triumphs of the free.

21 Though the morning seemed to linger
22 O'er the hill-tops far away,
23 Now the shadows bear the promise
24 Of the quickly coming day.

25 Soon the mists and murky shadows
26 Shall be fringed with crimson light,
27 And the glorious dawn of freedom
28 Break refulgent on the sight.

  1. Look up "denotation" and "connotation" here: http://www.onelook.com

    Yes, there are many examples of imagery, connotation, and metaphor all through this poem. Study these webpages carefully

    https://literarydevices.net/metaphor/

    The connotation of words is heavily involved in creating metaphors.
