Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Noiselessly
 
Noiselessly as the daylight comes back when night is done,
And the crimson streak on an ocean’s cheek grows into the great sun.
            —Mrs. Cecil Frances Alexander
  1
Noiselessly as the springtime her crown of verdure weaves,
And all the trees on all the hills open their thousand leaves.
            —Mrs. Cecil Frances Alexander
  2
As noiselessly as fairies’ feet that press
The dewdropt grass.
            —John Payne
  3
  Glide noiselessly as spirits of the night.
            —Michael Scott
