Personification: a figure of speech that gives human characteristics to anything nonhuman: force of nature, inanimate object, another living organism, or even an abstract idea.
Beautifully written, wonderfully illustrated (a Caldecott Honor Book), this book ended up in my library bag on accident.  And I'm so glad that it did.  It reminds me of the reasons to love each season and I can almost feel them cycling through as I read.  It "explains" perfectly those fabulous days when you step outside and just breathe in the perfection of the moment.

Good poetry tugs at your heart.  It's hard to explain how it makes you feel.
