Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
William Butler Yeats
 
  Black as black.  1
  Shining bright as a new lance.  2
  Dance like a wave of the sea.  3
  Fainter than a young lamb’s bleat.  4
  Gone as a cloud faded into the sky.  5
  Her eyes are grey like morning dew.  6
  Like sunset were her lips.  7
  Poetry is to philosophy what the Sabbath is to the rest of the week.  8
  Unchainable as the dim tide.  9
Wavered like a summer rill,
As her soft bosom rose and fell.
  10
  Woven … like bubbles in a frozen pond.  11
