Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes.
Bare as a naked bairn.
Came and went like the lighthouse gleam on a black night at sea.
As cosy as down among country lanes.
As dim as dim might be.
Fading like moonlight softly into darkness.
Gay as a guinea.
Gleam like the phosphor of the foam upon the shore.
Good as gold.
Harmless and pleasant as the murmur of brook and wind.
Light as a faint wreath of snow
That tremblest to fall in the wind.
Murmur like the moan of far-off seas.
Slow as the hand on clocks face.
Slow as the white cloud in the sky.
White as the winding-sheet.
