Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Song
 
Songs are like painted window-panes!
In darkness wrapped the church remains,
If from the market-place we view it;
But let us now inside repair,
And greet the holy chapel there!
At once the whole seems clear and bright,
Each ornament is bathed in light,
And fraught with meaning to the sight.
            —Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
