Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Camille Lemonnier
  Bright as living coal.  1
  Glistened as the tears in a widow’s eyes.  2
  Hissed like a rocket.  3
  It is like eating vanilla cream in Paradise listening to beautiful music.  4
  Roared like water which rushes from a lock when the gates are open.  5
  Round as a quoit.  6
  Sparkled like white bait in the meshes of a net.  7
  Lamps twinkled like stars along the water’s edge.  8
  White as the face of the dead.  9
  An old man, wizened as a dried plaice.  10
