1 Answer

    1. Alliteration:

    A couple of examples would be: subtle signals, waft with the wind

     

    2. Metaphor:

    One noticeable metaphor is: ‘And clouds gathering in the mind shed tears as they pass

    Here ‘clouds’ are used to represent the despair in the persona’s mind.

     

    3. Personification:

    Moonlight laughs holding the hem of the moon.’ Here, moonlight ‘laughs’ and is thus personified as it is attributed human qualities.
