Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Don Marquis
 
Ceased like an exquisite lyric
That dies on the breast of night.
  1
  Flit like blown feathers.  2
Flocked to his call
Like sprites that necromancy
Of a Prospero holds in thrall.
  3
  Glimmer like a butterfly.  4
  Moaned like some stricken thing … strangled with its own despair.  5
                They pass
Like a breath from the face of a glass.
  6
