  1. Enjambment- It is the continuation of sentences without breaking across the lines. The poem has many enjambments.

    Metaphors- It is when something else is implied beyond the literal meaning. The poem uses “some are loaves and some so nearly balls” to express the shape of stones used in the wall.

    Assonance- The poem repeats the vowel sounds in single sentences many times. Such as “The gaps I mean, no one has seen.”

    Irony- The title is an irony when compared to the message of the poem because it ends up contrasting mending wall with the idea that wall makes good neighbours.
