Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Hjalmar Hjorth Boyesen
 
  Clear as the skylark’s earliest greeting in the morning of the year.  1
  Dizzy as a moth that flutters round the flame.  2
  Light-footed as a hare.  3
  She shines like the birch in the sunlight’s play.  4
It was a voice so mellow, so bright and warm and round,
As if a beam of sunshine had been melted into sound.
