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

James Thomson

Blind like tragic masks of stone.

Cruel as death.

Like the sun wading through the misty sky.

Dire as when friends are rankled into foes.

Like pansies dark i’ the June o’ the year, grow my Love’s glad eyes.

Full as the summer rose.

Hungry as the grave.

Loose as the breeze that plays along the downs.

As is the lily or the mountain snow.

Serene and pleased a look as Patience ere put on.

Unstained and pure as the lily or the mountain snow.
