Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
James Sheridan Knowles
  The dreadful truth was opened like a gulf.  1
  Far as poles asunder.  2
  He fell as one struck dead.  3
  A sound so fine, there’s nothing lies ’twixt it and silence.  4
            Out of reach of him,
As the sun! As the stars—a million, million times
Beyond the sun.
  Rugged as Ailsa crag.  6
  Shame sits, like a foul vulture on a corse.  7
  Smoking like a boiler at the heat.  8
  Her artless speech, like chrystal, shows the thing it would hide, but only covers.  9
  White as an angel clad in light.  10
