  • Metaphor: rather like a simile except that the comparison is not direct but implied

    A violet by a mossy stone

    Half hidden from the eye.

    Your cheecks are tomatoes

    Thy sweetest can be enjoyed.

  • Personification: when inanimate objects are given a human form, or when they are made to speak.

    Many have loved me desperately,

    Many with smooth serenity,

    While some have shown contempt of me

    Till they dropped underground.

    …Patience who asks

    Wants war, wants wound; weary his …

Crossing the bar tennyson
Crossing the Bar (Tennyson)

Sunset and evening star,

And one clear call for me!

And may there be no moaning of the bar

When I put out to sea,

But such a tide as moving seems asleep,

to full for sound and foam,

When that which drew from out the boundless deep

turns again home.

Twilight and evening bell,

And after that the dark!

And may there be no sadness of farewell

When I embark;

For though from out our bourne of Time and Place

The flood may bear me far,

I hope to see my Pilot face to face

When I have crossed the bar
