    Exclamation Are these good metaphors, similes, and personifications

    please tell me if these are right

    As the stars dance gracefully across the sky (personification)
    I lay to rest
    It has been a long day and Im as tired as a tree is tall (simile)
    My heart holds true to this wonderous place (personification)
    The vast sea of trees deepens the farther I go
    Eternal sleep pulls at me relentlessly (personification)
    Gracious beauty or darkest despair awaits
    I hope to find the light in this world of darkness (metaphor)
    The cool touch of death warms my heart (personification)
    I am satisfied with the life I have led
    The cold wind, my guide through this immense maze of mischief (metaphor)

    Welcome to the forum, EnderGalaxyGirl.

    Please note my amendments to your capitalisation and punctuation.

    Like Tarheel, I want to know if you wrote those examples yourself, or if they're part of a school assignment. If the latter, we don't help with students' homework until their teachers have seen their answers first.

    Well, it looks like a school assignment regardless.

    Teacher: Class, I want each of you to come up with examples of personification, similes, and metaphors.

    Teacher (later): No, Johnny, that's not a metaphor.

    Are you clear on personification?
