Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Paul Laurence Dunbar
  Cheered her soul like dew a dusty flower.  1
  Fall, like the autumn-kissed leaf.  2
  Flashing … like scimitar from its sheath.  3
            Foremost in his mind,
Like the keen prow of some on-forging ship.
                Stalks shine
Like the burnished spears of a field of gold.
  Sweet as are the orchards, when the fruit is hanging ripe.  6
  Warm as sun at noon’s high hour.  7
