Personification L.O. I can write a poem using personification
Personification • Personification is when a writer gives an object the qualities of a person.
Personification Which word gives the quality of a person. 1) The sun stretches its warmth across the land. 2) The chair danced as the baby bounced to and fro. 3) The darkness wrapped its arms around me.
Personification What does this tell you and how do you feel? 1) The wind sang her mournful song through the falling leaves. 2) The video camera observed the whole scene. 3) The rain kissed my cheeks as it fell.
Personification 4) The daffodils nodded their yellow heads at the walkers. 5) The water beckoned invitingly to the hot swimmers. 6) The china danced on the shelves during the earthquake. 7) The car engine coughed and spluttered when it started during the blizzard.
Personification Poem This is a poem by a famous poet called Sylvia Plath. I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions. Whatever I see I swallow immediately Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike. I am not cruel, only truthful. This is about a mirror which can speak, see and swallow as well as tell the truth.
A House Awake The house awakes and stretches it chimneys to the sky. The door opens to greet the passers by. The curtains open and the windows peer out. The china dances on the mantelpiece as the family start to shout.
