Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Mrs. Norton
 
  Faint and forlorn … like the breath of a spirit sighing.  1
  Holy as heaven a mother’s tender love.  2
An echo returned on the cold gray morn,
Like the breath of a spirit sighing.
  3
  Soars, like a wild bird from a cypress bough, into the poets’ heaven.  4
  A softness like the atmosphere of dreams.  5
  Vanished like the feathery snow in summer’s running brooks.  6
