    1. Metaphor: The red colour of Sir Pertab Singh’s house is described using the metaphor ‘Rose-red’ in the first stanza.
    2. Simile: In the last stanza, a soldier’s faith is compared to being “Wide as the world, free as the air/Pure as the pool of death”, the usage of the word ‘as’ making it a simile.
    3. Personification: The line ‘And their blood sang to them as they rode’ is an example of personification where their blood is given the human attribute of singing.
