Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
A. J. Ryan
  Light as clear as that which fills eternity.  1
  Her eyes were like a heaven, where sunlight always glows.  2
  Frail as a flake of snow.  3
  Holy as bowers where angels have flown.  4
  Meet and mingle like human fear and hope.  5
  Pure as thoughts that thrill a saint.  6
  Sad as tears to the eyes that are bright.  7
  Sleeps like a dream in a grave.  8
Soft as the gleam after sunset
That hangs like a halo of grace
Where the daylight had died in the valley.
  Spotless as a lily’s leaf.  10
  Still as the gleam of a star through the dark.  11
  Sweet as smiles to the lips that are pale.  12
  Sweet as the dew-drops that fall on the roses in May.  13
  Sweet as the Summer’s birds.  14
  Wings as white as a dream of snow in love and light.  15
