| Advice is like snow; the softer it falls, and the longer it dwells upon, the deeper it sinks into the mind.|| 1|
| Base as spotted infamy.|| 2|
| Inseparably blend|
Like two bright dewdrops meeting in a flower.
| Blushing, like a bride.|| 4|
As is the ribbed sea-sand.
| Calm as the gliding moon.|| 6|
| As cheerful
as singing lark.|| 7|
| Chill me like dew damps of the unwholesome night.|| 8|
| Clambring, like a runaway lunatic.|| 9|
| Clear as lake.|| 10|
| Clear as the morning.|| 11|
| Cold as clay.|| 12|
| Curling, like a wreath of smoke.|| 13|
|An orphans curse would drag to Hell|
A spirit from on high;
But oh! more horrible than that
Is a curse in a dead mans eye!
| Burn dim, like lamps in noisome air.|| 15|
| Doleful as a cavern-well.|| 16|
| The ship went down like lead.|| 17|
|Down-trodden, as the untimely fruit|
Shook from the fig-tree by a sudden storm.
| Human experience, like the stern lights of a ship at sea, too often illuminates only the path we have passed over.|| 19|
| Fair as Edens bowers.|| 20|
| Fair, as the bosom of the swan.|| 21|
| Fair withal, as spirits are.|| 22|
| False and fair-foliaged as the manchineel.|| 23|
| It fanned his cheek|
Like a meadow-gale of Spring.
| Gladsome as the first-born of the spring.|| 25|
Like the bright rainbow on an evening stream.
| Gripe like a convulsion.|| 27|
| Hueless as a ghost.|| 28|
| As idle as a painted ship upon a painted ocean.|| 29|
| Ignorant as a bookseller.|| 30|
| Inaudible as dreams.|| 31|
| Light as the busy clouds.|| 32|
| Loud as a kings defiance.|| 33|
| Some men are like musical glasses,to produce their finest tone, you must keep them wet.|| 34|
As a mother with her child.
| Pant as in a dream.|| 36|
| Placeless, as spirits.|| 37|
| Pure as the babe.|| 38|
| Voice was sweet indeed, but it was thin and querulous like that of a feeble slave in misery, who despairs altogether, yet cannot refrain himself from weeping and lamentation.|| 39|
| Ravenous as winter wolf.|| 40|
| Joy rises in me, like a summers morn.|| 41|
| Rouses me, as with a cherubs trump.|| 42|
|As safe and sacred from the step of man|
As an invisible world.
| Shrinking back, like one that had mistook.|| 44|
| The sails did sigh like sedge.|| 45|
| Silence sank|
Like music on my heart.
| Singest like an angel in the clouds.|| 47|
| Sunk like lead into the sea.|| 48|
| Smile, as infants at a sudden light.|| 49|
| Smiling, like a sickly moralist.|| 50|
| As soft as honey-dew.|| 51|
Like eyes suffused with rapture.
| Still as a slave before his lord.|| 53|
| Strong as an host of armed Deities.|| 54|
| Sweet as the whispered breeze of evening.|| 55|
| Swift as a spirit.|| 56|
| Swift as dreams.|| 57|
| Vaulted like rebounding hail.|| 58|
Like some becalmed bark beneath the burst
Of Heavens immediate thunder.
| A landscape rose|
More wild and waste and desolate than where
The white bear, drifting on a field of ice,
Howls to her sundered cubs with piteous rage
And savage agony.
