| Descended like a wolf on the fold.|
| Descends like the foot of a crow.|
| Dryden, descending to such game, was like an eagle stooping to catch flies.|
| Would no more descend from his calm than a bronze statue from its pedestal.|
Like the spring whose breath is blending
All blasts of fragrance into one.
Percy Bysshe Shelley
| The light of speech descends like a tongue of the Pentecost.|
|Complaints of times when merit wants reward|
Descend like similes from bard to bard.
