Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
George Darley
 
  A blooming pair of vermeil cheeks, like Hebe’s in her ruddiest hours.  1
  Crisp as the unshorn desert hay.  2
  Grey as time.  3
  Pure as a Saint’s adoring sigh.  4
  Sideways, like an amorous dove.  5
  Soft as pity.  6
  Subside, like a swollen bubble on the ocean tide.  7
  Swift as a star falls through the night.  8
  Swift as a sunshot dart of light.  9
  Warm as a prayer in Paradise.  10
