Simile Poetry Can you remember what a simile is?

2 The Fly How large unto the tiny fly Must little things appear!-- A rosebud like a feather bed, Its prickle like a spear; A dewdrop like a looking-glass, A hair like golden wire; The smallest grain of mustard-seed As fierce as coals of fire; A loaf of bread, a lofty hill; A wasp, a cruel leopard; And specks of salt as bright to see As lambkins to a shepherd. By Walter de la Mere

3 A Closer Look… From what or who’s point of view is this poem written?
How does everything to the fly? A wasp, a cruel leopard A dewdrop like a looking-glass
