Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
John Wilson
 
  Fade, like waves breaking on a dreary shore.  1
  Fond of an old sweetheart as a brisk widow of her third husband.  2
  Glad as gardens.  3
  Holy as a spire rear’d o’er the house of God.  4
  Lucid as air.  5
  Melt … like the sun from the day.  6
  Smiling … like beauty waking from a happy dream.  7
