Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Thomas Wade
 
  Golden as a star.  1
  Hang like sackcloth on a wanton nun.  2
  Lustrous as sun-set.  3
  A veiled stream murmurs like thoughts of Heaven in a dream.  4
  Perforate, like a honeycomb.  5
  Silent as the mighty marching
Of earth and all the planets round the sun.
  6
  Stiff as a dry Quaker.  7
  Ugly as the angel of a sign-board.  8
  Unsubstantial as a dream.  9
  Weatherbeaten as a fisherman’s oar.  10
