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

Thomas Wade

Golden as a star.

Hang like sackcloth on a wanton nun.

Lustrous as sun-set.

A veiled stream murmurs like thoughts of Heaven in a dream.

Perforate, like a honeycomb.

Silent as the mighty marching
Of earth and all the planets round the sun.

Stiff as a dry Quaker.

Ugly as the angel of a sign-board.

Unsubstantial as a dream.

Weatherbeaten as a fisherman’s oar.
