| Blithe as a bird on a cherry bough.|
| Blithe as a grig.|
| Danced as blithely and briskly as a lost red maple leaf fluttering madly in a keen October breeze.|
| As blithe as the bird that rejoices.|
A. H. Beesly
| Blithe as a boblink.|
| Blithe as our kettles boiling.|
| Blithe as the lark that each day hails the dawn.|
| Blithe as finches sing.|
| Blithe as shepherd at a wake.|
| Blithe as a bird new risen from the corn.|
| Blithe as the first blithe song of birds that waken.|
| Blithe as a bird in the spring.|
| Blithe as May.|
| Blithe, as if on earth|
Were no such thing as woe.
| Blithe as the orchards and birds with the new coming of spring.|
James Russell Lowell
| Blithe as a blithe bird in air.|
| As blithe and sunny as the summer days.|
James Whitcomb Riley
| Blithe as swallows,|
Wheeling in the summer sky at close of day.
| Blither than Springs when her flowerful tresses|
Shake forth sunlight and shine with rain.
Algernon Charles Swinburne
| Blithe as the lark on sun-gilt wings|
High poised, or as the wren that sings
In shady places to proclaim
Her modest gratitude.
