    The pathetic fallacy is a figure of speech in which the natural world is treated as though it had human emotions. For instance "weeping cloud" is an example of the pathetic fallacy. This is also a kind of personification, or describing non-human objects in human ways but in strictest sense, the pathetic fallacy can only be applied to nature – animals, trees, weather patterns, etc.

    Pathetic fallacy

    But when the melancholy fit shall fall
    Sudden from heaven like a weeping cloud
    That fosters the droop-headed flowers all
    And hides the green hills in an April shroud

    – Keats
