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

Joseph Turnley

Bright as the seraphim pointing to eternity.

Fell a spirit, as sinks the star of day beneath its watery bed of western waves.

Glistening like the eyes of love.

Graceful as the sapphirine tide.

Her slender figure waved, like some light cypress when the merry winds carol midst the yielding boughs.
