The Assyrian came down like wolf on the fold and his cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold
like leaves of the forest when summer is green like leaves of the forest when autumn hath blown
For the angle of death spread his wings on the blast and there hearts once heaved , and forever grew still
In this stanza they use a similie to describe there preditors as wolfs and they use the word gold to help represent who is wealthy and who is not .
The foam of his gasping lay white on the turf ,and as cold as the spray of the rock-beating surf
in stanza two they have used a similie in the two quotes to refrence nature to describe how many there are.
The tents were all silent , the banners alone,the lances unlifted the trumpet unblown .
There is imagery in stanza 3 to describe the angle of death and the way that one breath on the army can kill them .
And the idols are brike in the temole of Baal
Stanza 4 uses really disturbing and graphic imagery to what happened to the horse by using gasping , white and spray .
in stanza 5 they use sensory imagry to tell people that the war is over and that all the soldier are dead .
in stanza six the poem creates a guilty vibe to make everyone feel sorry for all the woman that were left lonly after there husbands or partners were killed at war .
