Examples of Personification in Poetry

"Have you got a brook in your little heart,
Where bashful flowers blow,
And blushing birds go down to drink,
And shadows tremble so?"
Emily Elizabeth Dickinson, Have You Got A Brook In Your Little Heart

"On Juliet smile the autumn stars
And windswept plains by Winchelsea,
In summer on their sandy bars
Her rivers loiter languidly."
Enid Derham, A Ballade of Home

"The sea had climbed the mountain peaks,
And shouted to the stars
To come to play: and down they came
Splashing in happy wars
.

The pine grew apples for a whim,
The cart-horse built a nest;
The oxen flew, the flowers sang,
The sun rose in the west."
Gilbert Keith Chesterson, A Certain Evening

"It is better, O day, that you go to your rest,
For you go like a guest who was loth to remain!
Swing open, ye gates of the east and the west,
And let out the wild shadows the night and the rain."
Henry Kendall, Sunset
