Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes.
Alfred Edward Housman
Dismal as a wet Derby day.
The steady drummer
Drumming like a noise in dreams.
Glitter like an angels ladder.
Manful as the man of stone.
Old operas are like old bonnets: they ought to be remodelled, retrimmed from time to time.
As reviving as an epigram.
Shone like an aureole round the head of some modern saint.
