Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Charles L. Moore
                Blown apart
Like a rose that ready is
For the sun’s perfecting kiss.
  Audacious as the day.  2
  Circling like an eddy.  3
Cleft like a narrow harvest swath,
O’ernodded by the plumes of wheat.
  Disrobed, like a pure image in a secret shrine.  5
  Eyes like setting planets, weak and dim.  6
  Remote as the stars are.  7
  Serene as summer in Arcadian hills.  8
  Shifting like the boundaries of a dream.  9
  Sob, like ocean’s tremor when it turns to ebb.  10
