Sun on the Daisssssies (Bonus points if you get the allusion)

Look at the statement below:

The sun kissed the flowers
Before the clouds closed its eye.



This is an example of:

a. personification
b. allusion
c. hyperbole
d. irony












Scroll down for the answer.












_________________________________
a. is the correct answer.  Personification means to give something not human some human characteristics.  Here the sun is kissing, which, being a ball of firey gases, it cannot do.


The allusion in the title is to Gollum in chapter five of The Hobbit.  They left it out of the movie.  :(
