Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes.
Light and fleeting as a dream of night lost in garish day.
Fleeting as a shade.
Fleeting as joy of youth.
Fleeting like feathers in the winde alofte.
As fleeting as April sunshine.
As bubbles that swim on the beakers brim
And break on the lips while meeting.
Charles Fenno Hoffman
Fleeting as a passing sigh.
Fleeting as air.
Fleeting like a beam of light.
Fleeting as the bow in the clouds.
Martin Farquhar Tupper
A thing as fleeting as the thin sea-foam.
George Sylvester Viereck
Fleeting as the wings of sleep.
Fleeting as health or beauty.
