Personification and Nature

Lesson Note: This week, we learned what personification was and experimented with writing about it! We then wrote about nature, some with personification, and some with imagery, which we also read about.

A Really Hot Day (in a flower’s point of view)

by Wendy T.


It’s a hot summer day

with nothing to do. We had

not had one drop of water

for three days now

We don’t know what to do

besides thinking when

are we going to have water

for me and rose

Nature it’s so fun

it makes you want to run

Is nature fun?

or am I a real nun

and it’s fun to run

to become a nun

sing a song

that says ding dong

and an animal that says

hing hong.

I saw the most beautiful thing

I saw a tree falling

its leaves and the rain descended on me

and I played with the leaves of the tree and the rain

I said to the rain

the raindrops fell on the leaves of the tree

they said okay

they said the leaves thank you

and it was the best day for me

and for the first time I write poetry it can be bad


The Sun

by Daniel Y.


Hello I’m right on top of you

actually I’m on top of everyone!

That’s right you can find me

anywhere any time.

What’s my name?

It is the sun.

I give warmth and life and I

started everything or should I say stared at

everything (hahaha).
