|Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes. 1916.|
| Departed, like Ichabods glory.|
| His fame is departed like mist, when it flies, before the rustling wind, along the brightening vale.|
| Departed as a shadow.|
Edgar Allan Poe
|Departed like a gleam, that for a moment in the heavy sky|
Is opened when the storm is hurrying by.
| Departed as a scroll when it is rolled together.|
Like blighted buds; or clouds that mimicked land
Before the sailors eye.
