How figure of speech in question4 is metaphor please explain in detail

Dear Student,

A metaphor is a figure of speech that describes an object or action in a way that isn't literally true, but helps explain an idea or make a comparison. It is used in the line 'the merry children spilling out of their homes'. While driving to the airport the poet turned her attention out of the car’s window to distract herself from the fear of losing her mother. She saw children coming out of their homes and playing merrily, which was in sharp contrast to her ageing mother. Thus, there is the use of metaphor to explain the contrast between beginning of life and fear of death.

metaphor is the correct answer as it is compared in a way that usually water spills but here children are given that quality.

it cannot be personification Kanishka because in that non-living things are given living or we can say human character but in this line comparison of children is done
