Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes. 1916.


Ascends like the hoof of a camel.

Descends like the foot of a crow.

Like listless topers singing o’er their cups.

Glowed red, like the ishrik seeds, fresh fallen, unbroken, bright.

Sweet as that which is forbidden.

Trembles …
As the distracted herd, when they the lion meet.

Unchanged, like the cat which became blind, and still hankered after mice.
