Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
William Dean Howells
  Catching like fire in dry grass.  1
      She as fair as any shepherdess
That ever was in mask or Christmas scene.
  She fell like a column of water.  3
  Lies hushed, like a seer in a vision.  4
  Pure as starlight shall their deeds of daring glow.  5
            Sere and dead
As any leaves of summer shed
From crimson bough when autumn grieves.
  Still as salt.  7
  Tenderly … like the song of the robin in the tree.  8
Vague … like feathers wafted backwards
From passage birds in flight.
