Are final thoughts linguistic devices?





i have to write a english essay on a poem, and part of it picking out linguistic devices and how these affect the reader. I have picked out emotive language and analysed that to my best, however, the poem doesnt seem to include anymore, no metaphors, similies, anaphora or nothing! however, i was googling differant linguistic devices to see if i had forgotten one when i came across one i havent studied in class called final thought. and wen looking at my poem it uses this and i could write alot about it so i am wondering is it really a linguistic device and should i use it?
