But time did beckon to the flowers. Herbert
metaphor
simile
personification
hyperbole

my answer simile

  • English -

    Similes have like or as. So that's not right.

    Look up the definitions for the other three words.

  • English -

    well a hyperbole is using embelishment
    and personification denotes human characteristics so it would be personification and time is a human characteristic.

  • English -

    You're right. It's personification because it gives "time" a human characteristic.
