A Dictionary of Similes
Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes.
A sky as blue as the enamel on the statuettes of Osiris.
A burning eye, yellow and phosphoric like the eye of a crocodile or a lion.
Fair as a young maid asleep beneath new fallen snow.
The sand gleamed like mica dust.
Lustrous as agate.
Palpitating at the least emotion like the nostrils of an amorous tigress.
Pretty as a seraph.
Pure as consecrated water.
Voice, resounding as a brass trumpet.
A cry more shrill than Diana surprised by Actæon.
Undulating like a snake rearing on its tail.
Wandering like a plaintive shadow about the places where I dwell.
