Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Alfred Austin
  Barren as winter rain.  1
  Bright as a beach in the moonlight.  2
  As crimson as August heather.  3
  Domestic as the night.  4
  Droop, like to bees belated in the rain.  5
  Florid as the Spring.  6
  Frayed like fretted foam.  7
  As free from artifice as is the dimple in childhood’s cheek.  8
  Fresh as Fiumicino’s foam.  9
As idle as a dial when the sun
Sulks in the clouds.
  Curving lips like wave half-furled.  11
  Motionless as a babe asleep.  12
  Pale as a moon that moves alone through lonely space.  13
  Pink as the rose in Galatea’s cheek.  14
  Radiant as morning.  15
  Restless as the sea.  16
  Sad as silence when a song is spent.  17
  Sinews like a vine.  18
  Steadfast as the steered-by star.  19
  Tender as the midnight moon.  20
  Tranquil as a star.  21
  As wide as land.  22
  Wise as Time and Silence are.  23
