Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes.
Baron Karl F. H. von Münchausen
Blushing like a summer morning.
Driven forth like a sky-rocket.
Floating in the air like so many spiders upon their cobwebs.
Globular like a hazel-nut.
Horrible, like the shrieks of witches.
Passed along the waves like the chariot of Neptune.
Pendant like berries on the branches.
Roars like a bull.
Twines round it as the ivy does the ash.
Quiet as at anchor in a dead calm.
