As busy as that busy bee
That's landed on a flower.
As soft as raindrops falling
From an early morning shower.
As black as coal that's burning
With a crackling, blazing light.
As white as snow that's falling
From the dark and chilly night.
As dull as dishwater that sits
Inside the kitchen sink.
As tasty as Mum's apple pie
That's gone within a blink.
As bright as summer's sunshine
That brightens up the day.
As dull as thick clouds overhead
That paint our world quite grey.
As noisy as the treetop is
With boisterous, chattering birds
And as useful as these similes were
Which enhanced this poet's words.
