Metaphor fully stated or implied.--A metaphor may be either fully stated, as "The ship ploughs (or is the plough of) the sea," or implied, as "The winds are the horses that draw the plough of the sea." In the former case it is distinctly stated, in the latter implied, that the "plough of the sea" represents a ship.
