Figure Of Speech : SIMILE

A simile is a poetical device used as a comparison of two unlike things using the words “like, as, same, just as”. In such a comparison of two unlike things, Like, as, and other comparative words emphasize the unlikeness of two things compared.
In English literature, exclusively in political yard Simile is a most used poetical device by every age poet. In other words, we can say Simile is the most compulsory and useful device that is used in every design of the poem of every age. Either in a romantic poem or in the metaphysical poem, Simile is a compulsory device in form of similar comparison between dissimilar things.

Examples : 
> Only a sweet and virtuous soul like seasoned timber, never gives.
> Our heart is as large in theme as spreaded paradise of God.
