Brief Definition

A personification poem is a poem that puts life to inanimate objects. Personification itself is not the name of the type of poetry, but the name of the literary device used in these particular poems. In a personification poem, you may find that thing such as beds, chairs, and more will be described as having thoughts or emotions that only human beings can possess. Personification is not anchored solely to inanimate objects, these features can be applied to animals as well.

Personification is used to highlight a point or thought made so that a reader can have a deeper grasp on what the poet has to tell them. For example, a commonly used line consisting of personification outside of poetry used daily would be, "I had to finally sit down, my feet were screaming in pain." Using personification can further impact the point made and in poetry it can light up a world of magic and wonder for those reading. 

Personification Poem Example


.                                              She sleeps in her rose wood bed,
                                                  under a blanket of velvet red;
                                                   old and alone and forgotten,
                                           she dreams of the love she once had.
                                              Once again she recalls his caress
                                                      on the curve of her hips
                                                                and her breast
                                                         as he moved his bow
                                                      on the strings of her soul,
                                                             playing her sound
                                                    'til his passion was spent.
                                           They traveled the whole world over,
                                                      to every city and town;
                                              the maestro, his bow and violin,
                                                 bringing each curtain down.
                                               He died in a cry of sweet refrain,
                                               clutching her strings to his heart; 
                                            as he fell to the floor in a final encore,
                                                       tearing her world apart.
                                           So she sleeps in her rose wood bed,
                                                  under a blanket of velvet red;
                                                         her strings still filled 
                                                    with the song of her soul,
                                                        etched by the maestro
                                                               that loved her
                                                               so long ago!
