A Personification Poem By Willa, Leslie, Malik, Jimmy
The lawnmower chomps up grass
and gulps it down.
â€œI want more!â€
â€œI have no food in my empty tummy!â€
â€œI want more food!â€
It has a long nose like an anteater
which it sniffs up long grass with.
â€œVrrrooom, sniff, vrrrrooom, sniff!â€
It runs really fast
down the front and back lawn.
Vroom, vroom- racing like a roller skater.
It angrily steps on flowers
and when it leaves the flowers are gone.
Itâ€™s a clear, empty field or plain.
When it leaves
the tall grass is gone
and in its place thereâ€™s short, fresh, new lawn!
A Personification Poem By Elina, Noel, Chris, Jared
It cleans up the streets
like people on Earth Day.
like a hungry stomach.
It gulps snowâ€¦
like neighbors in fall.
It has a big, yellow snout
like a monster.
â€œHUNGRY FOR MORE!â€ says the snowplow.Filed under Christian, Elina, Jared, Noel, Personification Poems | Comments (3)
A Personification Poem By Brianna, Will, Chris
Uuuuummmmm! Iâ€™m hungry for dinner!
Someone please turn me on!
Finally! Iâ€™m on!
Iâ€™m sliding on the rug like an ice skater.
Iâ€™m looking for crumbs
Hunting and searching with my eagle eyes on the hunt.
Wait! There are some crumbs in the corner!
Please empty my stomach.
I need surgery!
A Personification Poem By Arianna and Payge
The pencil sharpener gulps up wood from the pencil.
Pencil sharpener wants more. â€œI WANT MORE!â€
The handle from the pencil sharpener rolls all around
Like a person somersaulting.
Pencil sharpener still isnâ€™t full.
I shake and gobble up more pencil shavings.
Now I am fullâ€¦ no more!
I spit it all out.
A Personification Poem By Lena and Samantha
â€œClick, clickâ€ goes the stapler
As it puts things together.
â€œMmmm, I want to staple more!â€
It releases itâ€™s babies,
â€œBye bye babies, I will miss you!â€
Its mouth chews on paper corners.
BOOM! Goes the stapler like a person stamping.
â€œMunch, munchâ€ donâ€™t get near my teeth!
Personification is a poetic device where a poet makes an object act like a person in order to make it “come to life.” We picked a random picture card and paired off in small groups to make the object “come to life.” We bet when you read our poems you’ll never see these ordinary objects in the same way again!

Lawn Mower: A Personification Poem
By Hannah and Samantha
I am like a baby eating up old grass
And spitting out newer, cleaner grass.
I am a cleaning, seatless vacuum
I am like a gardener on roller skates
I clean up the dirty grass
While I skate on your lawn.
Iâ€™m like a hairdresser-
I give the grass a funky new â€˜do!
When Iâ€™m done I say,
â€œDonâ€™t ride your bike on the grass!â€Filed under Personification Poems | Comments (13)
