  Linked, like rose-buds in a wreath.
  Linked like a river by ripples following ripples.
            —Edwin Arnold
  His vulture nature had already linked itself to this poor little soul as a spider binds a fluttering insect in its web, which the little thing tries vainly to break.
            —Paul Bourget
  Linked each to each by labor, like a bee.
            —Thomas Hood
Link in sympathy like the keys
Of an organ.
            —John Greenleaf Whittier
