When young Dawn with her rose-red fingers shone once more
the true son of Odysseus sprang from bed and dressed,
over his shoulder he slung his well-honed sword,
fastened rawhide sandals under his smooth feet
and stepped from his bedroom, handsome as a god.

– Homer

The Odyssey, Book 2, lines 1-5.The opening lines of Book 2 features personification, with dawn described as rising like a person. There is a simile comparing the son of Odysseus to the gods, as we are treated to a newly invigorated and more confident Telemachus.
