Personification Definition

Personification is a figure of speech in which a thing – an idea,  an animal or any thing which is not human– is given human attributes

The non-human objects are portrayed in such a way that we feel they have the ability to act like human beings. For example, when we say: 'The moon steps lightly through the night' we give the human the ability to walk, which is a human quality. Thus, we can say that the moon has been personified in the given sentence.  

As a poet, I love the use of personification, of course, and you'll find, throughout hundreds of my poems that I've scattered personification like gold dust to embellish whatever I write about.  

I'll list some of my poems here, which use personification, but you are sure to find hundreds more I am positive of this.
