Hello everyone! This is all about simile can you answer this?
Instruction: What are compared in the following lines? What do the two unlike objects have in common?
Questions:
1. Eyelids like feather's edge
Tresses long and black as night,
Lips and cheeks like jasmine
blooms...

2. The gay and lovely (poems)
pirouette,
Like dancers in my mind

3. I sit alone,
Thinking sharp thoughts as warm-
less as the glacial sun,
I sit alone like a frozen rock
Left and embedded deep in glacial
rivers—lonely.

4. Like silent, hungry sharks that
swim in the darkness of the sea,
the German submarines arrived in
the middle of the night.

5. Silence dropped like a curtain
around them.
