    1. Repetition: The phrase ‘How beautiful is the rain!’ is repeated throughout the poem for added emphasis.
    2. Simile: Raindrops falling on roofs in compared to that of hoofs trampling with the use of the word ‘like’ as can be seen from the lines ‘How it clatters along the roof/Like the tramp of hoofs’. Again, the flow of river is also compared to a ‘river’.
    3. Visual Imagery: Usage of the words ‘gushes’, ‘pours’ and the similes previously noted are all examples of the vivid visual imagery employed in the poem.
