    1. Personification– Personification is a figure of speech in which an idea or thing is given human attributes and/or feelings or is spoken of as if it were human. The wind that announces daybreak is personified in this poem.
    2. Alliteration– It is the occurrence of the same sound at the beginning of closely connected words. Examples- “O mists, make room”, “chanticleer, / Your clarion”
    3. Metaphor– A metaphor directly refers to one thing by mentioning another. Here, “leafy banners” is a metaphor for the trees’ branches.
