Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Frances Anne Kemble
  Calmly, like a soul at rest.  1
Countless as the golden motes
That dance upon the sun’s earth-kissing beams.
  Eyes like two streams of liquid light.  3
  Eyes like the dawn of day.  4
As silver-sandalled Artemis.
  Rosy flushes, like warm dreams of love.  6
  Gleaming like rose-hued pearls below the wave.  7
  Gleam like pale wells of precious malachite.  8
  Shone like a friendly twinkling star.  9
Shining as the Alps, when that the sun
Gems their pale robes with diamonds.
  Sparkling like diamond rocks in the sun’s rays.  11
Untwisted the fond links that bound us,
Like frost wreaths, that melt in the morning’s first beam.
  Wondrous as a dream.  13
