Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
  Music at meals is like a carbuncle set in gold, or a signet of an emerald highly burnished.
  The music of Carryl was like the memory of joys that are past, pleasant and mournful to the soul.
            —James Macpherson
  Rippling music like the sweet babble of brook over stones.
            —Harriet M. Miller
Music as sweet as the music which seems
Breathed softly and faint in the ear of our dreams.
            —John Greenleaf Whittier
