    Hint: People don't have many hands or tongues, so the poet is associating human features to something non-human

    Also, you may want to make sure you understand what an onomatopoeia and simile are more fully:

    Onomatopoeia: A word that imitates or suggests the source of the sound it describes. (for example: woof, honk, meow, etc)

    Simile: A form of direct comparison that generally uses 'like' or 'as'. (for example: "That oven feels like a volcano." or "The ground was as rough as sandpaper."

    Ok..That particular verse refers to nature..so its nature's hands and tongues... So would it personification?

    Personification types of verse in which inanimate or non-human objects are given human attributes.

    Right.
