Breath
 
Her breath is like the fragrant breeze,
That gently stirs the blossom’d bean,
When Phœbus sinks beneath the seas.
            —Robert Burns

  Breath like the sweets from the hawthorn tree.
            —Barry Cornwall
  2
                Her breath
Like a soft western wind, when it glides o’er
Arabia, creating gums and spices.
            —Philip Massinger
  3
                A breath,
Hot as the blasts that dried old seas.
            —Isaac R. Pennypacker
  4
  Breath like morn’s young breeze.
            —Pilpay
