Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Henry Brooke
 
  Enlivening as a sneeze.  1
  Gay as a woman’s wish.  2
Gone, like traces on the deep,
Like a spectre grasp’d in sleep,
Dews inhal’d from morning glades,
Melting snows, and gliding shades.
  3
  Hoarse as the rustling of autumnal breeze.  4
  Pure as the expanse of Heaven.  5
  Sad as a thousand sighs, when the dark winds sob through the yews.  6
  Various as woman’s will.  7
