Simile Poem Example


Like drops of paint on a painter’s easel
Resting quietly, patiently among others
To gently decorate the canvas;

Like soft silk folds of a lady’s dress
Pooling out, freshly washed,
With a hint of sweet perfume;

Like a cluster of warm, new colors
Gathered in the glowing sunrise,
Bringing the fragrance of a brand new day;

Like velvety scraps of a doll maker’s cloth
Like the sweet soft blush on children’s cheeks 
Like the smile of sunshine welcoming spring
