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

Frank Waters

Changeful as a lover’s hope.

Dark and dull like the mould upon a skull.

Faint as half-forgotten dreams.

Gone, like the summer lightning’s gleam.

Meandering … like a silver scarf outblown
On the fluttering of the gale.

Moaned … like a dirge.

Mutters like a dim despair.

Passed, like a sweet but transient dream.

Ravenous as a prairie’s fire.

Evanished like a blink
Of starlight ere the mind can think.
