    Personification and Alliteration

    Personification is perfect for poetry.
    Alliteration stands jelous aside her.
    "What does a scanner see? he asked himself.
    I mean, really see?
    Into the head? Down into the heart?
    see into me—into us—clearly or darkly?
    "

    The first line talks of personification but is using alliteration.
    The second line talks of Alliteration though personifies both 'alliteration' and 'personification'.

    I think Delta40 is alluding to your variant spelling of 'jealous'. Do yourself a favour & download a decent browser with a good spellchecker. It works for me, I can type faster than I write, although I tend to rely on a spellchecker to find the typos that inevitably result from that LOL!.
