  Eloquence flows like droppings of sweet poppy syrup.
            —Thomas Babington Macaulay

            —Thomas Moore
Bubble, bubble, flows the stream
Like an old tune through a dream.
            —Maurice Thompson
  Flow as hugely as the sea.
            —William Shakespeare
  Flowed like light amid the shadows of the sea cast from one cloudless star.
            —Percy Bysshe Shelley
  Flowed by like the streaming images of sleep.

Like smoke, along the level of the blast,
In mighty currents.
