Simile Poetry

O How large unto the tiny fly
Must little things appear!-A rosebud like a feather bed,
Its prickle like a spear;
O A dewdrop like a looking-glass,
A hair like golden wire;
The smallest grain of mustard-seed
As fierce as coals of fire;
O A loaf of bread, a lofty hill;
A wasp, a cruel leopard;
And specks of salt as bright to see
As lambkins to a shepherd.
By Walter de la Mere
