Examples of Personification

The flowers begged for water.
The wind screamed as it raced around the house.
The house was lazy and unkempt.
The bit chewed into the horse's mouth.
Lightning danced across the sky.
Trees bowed to the ground.
The carved pumpkin smiled at me.
The vines wove their fingers together to form a braid.
The wind whispered softly in the night.
The sun played hide and seek with the clouds.
The stars winked at me.
The camera loved her.
The radio sprang to life at the touch of a button.
The bed groaned.
The headlights winked.
