Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Bereft
 
                Bereft,
As trees that suddenly have dropped their leaves.
            —Jean Ingelow
  1
Bereft as a man whom bitter time bereaves
Of blossom at once and hope of garnered sheaves,
Of April at once and August.
            —Algernon Charles Swinburne
  2
                Bereft,
As when some tower doth fall,
With battlement, and wall,
And gate, and bridge, and all,
And nothing left.
            —Mary A. Townsend
