Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Adelaide A. Procter
  Cry of anguish, like the last dying wail of some dumb, hunted creature.  1
  Fade … like a nightmare’s ghastly presence, in the truthful dawn of day.  2
  Falling as gently as an answer to a prayer.  3
  It flooded the crimson twilight like the close of an Angel’s Psalm.  4
  Falling as gently as an answer to a prayer.  5
  Passed away, like shadows of the moon.  6
  Quieted like love overcoming strife.  7
  Scattered, like treasures of the lost Hesperides.  8
  Snapped like the threads of a lyre.  9
Joy is like restless day; but peace divine
  Like quiet night;
Lead me, O Lord,—till perfect Day shall shine
  Through Peace to Light.
