What is one metaphor and one simile in the poem "Leaning Into The Afternoons"
by Pablo Neruda? What do they mean and how do they aid what Neruda is trying to state in the poem?

    Not many people have read that poem. You may want to post it on here, for others to go through.

    A simile uses like or as to compare things. A metaphor is a implicit comparison for ex. He is a snake. It doesn't use like or as, but like a simile it still compares things.

    One simile would be: The birds of night peck at the first stars
    that flash like my soul when I love you.

    simile = turning like a drowning man's.

    metaphor = oceanic eyes.
