Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Denis Florence McCarthy
  The sweet-laden thoughts come, like bees, to abide in his heart as a hive.  1
  Bright as the sunbeam’s light.  2
A gleam of hope through my black night broke,
Like a star’s bright form
Through a whistling storm,
Or the moon through a midnight oak.
  Shone calm … like the moon in the midst of the night.  4
  Vanished … like the body in the tomb.  5
  Vanished … like the day branch in the fire.  6
