Examples of Personification in Poetry:

  • The breeze kissed my cheek.
  • When I got home from school my dog smiled at me.
  • The blanket wrapped its arms around me.
  • Rays of sunshine danced through the trees.

This poem is a great representation of personification because it makes winter seem human.



Winter by Olivia Kooker

If winter were a person, she would be a girl with frosty hair.

Winter would wear snow pants, snow boots, gloves, a hat, and scarf.

Winter would smell like hot chocolate and peanut butter and Hershey Kiss cookies baking in the oven.

Winter would spend the day eating cookies and drinking hot cocoa by a lake.

Winter would spend the night by sitting in the snow waiting for morning so children could come out to play.
