| Beautiful as Dians face.|| 1|
| Bounteous as the Niles dark waters.|| 2|
|Brilliant as rain-drops, when the western sun|
Sees his own miniature of beams in each.
| Broke like a sea-bubble on the sand.|| 4|
| Clear as the blue, sublime, oer-arching sky.|| 5|
| Constant as the day and night from east to west.|| 6|
| Corrupted as the grave.|| 7|
| Couchd like a lion watching for his prey.|| 8|
| Covert as the birth of thought.|| 9|
Like caterpillars on a wall.
|The Dead are like the stars by day;|
Withdrawn from mortal eye,
But not extinct, they hold their way
In glory through the sky.
| Dishevelld hair,|
Like eagles plumage ruffled by the air.
| Distinct as the billows, yet one as the sea.|| 13|
| And the bright dew-bead on the bramble lies, like liquid upon beautys eyes.|| 14|
| Fair as Orion.|| 15|
| Fair as the rainbow shines through darkening showers.|| 16|
| Faltering like the skylarks young.|| 17|
| Far as imaginations eye can roll.|| 18|
|Fatal as the Egyptian night,|
When the eldest-born were slain.
| Fierce as a turkey-cock.|| 20|
| Flared like molten brass.|| 21|
| Floats like soft-melting murmurs of grief.|| 22|
| Flown, like morning clouds, a thousand ways.|| 23|
| Frail as the clouds of sunset.|| 24|
|Free as Severns waves, that spring to bless|
Their parent hills.
| Glared like a torch amidst creations tomb.|| 26|
Like fiery serpents hissing through the air.
| Gleam, like drifted gold in summers cloudless beam.|| 28|
| Gleamd, like the meteors of a northern sky.|| 29|
| Glistening like gossamer.|| 30|
| Glowed like a torch amid creations tomb.|| 31|
| Hid like a buried star.|| 32|
| Keen as a wolf.|| 33|
| Loathsome as death.|| 34|
|Lovely as an infants dream|
On the waking mothers breast.
| Mingling foes,|
Like billows dashd in conflict.
| Pass away, like a thin cloud that melts across the moon.|| 37|
Like autumn foliage withering in the blast.
| Peep like Venus rising from her shell.|| 39|
As though they were but things of dust and ashes.
| Pure as a wreath of snow on April flowers.|| 41|
| Radiated like the stars.|| 42|
| Ran, as in the terror of a dream.|| 43|
| Shine sweetly through the gloom,|
Like glimpses of eternal day beyond the tomb.
| Shiverd, like witherd moss.|| 45|
| Shot, like meteors changed from stars to gleams of lightning.|| 46|
| Silent as the depth of night.|| 47|
| Smote him like a judgment from above.|| 48|
|Soft as evening oer the ocean,|
When she charms the waves to rest.
| Sported like gilded insects on the wing.|| 50|
| Sprang, as smitten with a mortal wound.|| 51|
| Sweet as Angel accents.|| 52|
| Swift as Deaths own arrows dart.|| 53|
| Swifter than the frighted dove.|| 54|
| Swims, like an eagle, in the eye of noon.|| 55|
| Terrible as torrents in their fall.|| 56|
| Triumphantly ride,|
Like foam on the surges, the swans of the tide.
|Unchanging still from year to year,|
Like stars returning in their sphere,
With undiminishd rays.
| Variable as flickering flames.|| 59|
| Volatile as the fragrance of a flower.|| 60|
| Wild as the changes of a dream.|| 61|
