Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Trumbull Stickney
An old light smolders in her eye
There! she looks up. They grow and glow
Like mad laughs or a rhapsody
That flickers out in woe.
  Indolent as a warm rain.  2
  Laughs like beech-leaves ringing in the light.  3
                Crimson smile,
Like seas hid by a meadow-land.
  Smooth as the liquid passage of a bird.  5
  Yearning, like a swallow in the void.  6
