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

John Wilson

Fade, like waves breaking on a dreary shore.

Fond of an old sweetheart as a brisk widow of her third husband.

Glad as gardens.

Holy as a spire rear’d o’er the house of God.

Lucid as air.

Melt … like the sun from the day.

Smiling … like beauty waking from a happy dream.
