Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Charles Sangster
  Ethereal as the air.  1
  As fixed as the law of light.  2
  Fresh as the tropic rose.  3
  Fall low as Persian to the sun.  4
  As luminous as the sun’s intensest beam.  5
  Minds open as a well-read book.  6
  Proud as an empress on her marriage-day.  7
  Steady as the ocean waves.  8
Sure as the sun rolls up the morn,
Or twilight from eve is born.
  Sweet as the dreamings of the nightingales.  10
  Swift as a hawk.  11
  Translucent as pure crystal.  12
Thy voice like rills
Of silver, trills
Such sounds of liquid sweetness.
