Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
George Mac-Henry
 
  Bright as musky moss-rose summer’s sun.  1
  Bright as the dimpled smiles that spring enwreath.  2
  Budded as a thorn to sting.  3
  Chaste as the pious rapture of the nun.  4
  Fair as a Seraph.  5
  Ferments like boiling yeast.  6
  Glistened like the glow of precious stones.  7
  Mild as the call of spring to buried flowers.  8
  Noiseless … as the falling dew.  9
  Pure as the kiss that waked Endymion.  10
  Sad as the tears the sullen Winter weeps.  11
  Soft as the swan-down where Summer sleeps.  12
  Sweet as summer’s showers.  13
  Warm as Cytherea.  14
