I am trying to find 3 poetic devices in the poem "The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost.
I think "to Where it bent in the undergrowth" is personification

I think "Somewhere ages and ages hence" is figurative language

and "then took the other, as just as fair" is a simile
Am I correct???
Thank you!!
