A Personification: Piano

Personification means to make alive..to give it human thoughts and things like that. In ENGLISH that means that if I'm doing a personification about the piano in our living room, I try to think about what it thinks when I play it, or when it's closed or is serving as the lesson piano for my mom's students. So, here goes...


Hi, my name is Huntington. I'm a piano.

I'm going to tell you about last night around 9:18 exactly. My people came in, but only three of them: the woman, the man, and the short girl. The little girl went and got in her PJs. She came and she looked at me. Then she played me. She is very sweet. I'm glad that when she plays me, she doesn't bang on my keys. That really hurts. It makes me throb. She is very gentle. She does tickle me sometimes too!

She played "Heart and Soul", "Chopsticks", "Tuck Everlasting", and another song that doesn't have a name. Then she closed me again. I hope she plays me again.

My keys need to be checked. I noticed I'm sounding off tune. Oh, no....I almost forgot. The piano doctor is out of town. Hmmm...maybe I can fix myself...Hmmm...

I hope she comes back really, really, REALLY soon. I get lonely without her. My first person, The Woman, has had me since she was a little short girl. She has passed me on to her little short girl. Thanks for listening. Hope you come back!

En"Joy" =D

Great job. I wish I could pop over and listen to you play Huntington. Did your Mom teach you and Colt how to play?

I love your bulletin board. My oldest daughter Jessica reads your blog also. She likes your music.

Hi Joy,

You did a wonderful job on giving "our" piano (Huntington that is) human qualities. I enjoyed your personification! That's the way you do it, and you'll get more practice the more you do it. Just imagine how the object would feel if could feel or think. See you'll make me feel sorry for ole Huntington now everytime we close the lid because now I know he's lonely! lol! Really, good job!

Have a fun time at gym with your friends!

I love you.

I'm sure our piano would love to be friends with your piano![I guess it's name is KIMBALL:)]
PS.How do you get the back round on your blog?
Thanks Joy!
