Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes.
Bright as living coal.
Glistened as the tears in a widows eyes.
Hissed like a rocket.
It is like eating vanilla cream in Paradise listening to beautiful music.
Roared like water which rushes from a lock when the gates are open.
Round as a quoit.
Sparkled like white bait in the meshes of a net.
Lamps twinkled like stars along the waters edge.
White as the face of the dead.
An old man, wizened as a dried plaice.
