Identify 2 examples of each of the following in the poem:
His hair LIKE mouldy hay.
He spurred LIKE a mad-man.
His face burnt LIKE a brand.
Her face was LIKE a light.
Down LIKE a dog.
The road WAS a gipsy’s ribbon.
The wind WAS a torrent of darkness.
His eyes WERE hollows of madness.
There was death at every window.
The road WAS a ribbon of moonlight.
Bound… barrel… breast.
Cobbles… clattered… clashed.
