Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Frank Waters
 
  Changeful as a lover’s hope.  1
  Dark and dull like the mould upon a skull.  2
  Faint as half-forgotten dreams.  3
  Gone, like the summer lightning’s gleam.  4
Meandering … like a silver scarf outblown
On the fluttering of the gale.
  5
  Moaned … like a dirge.  6
  Mutters like a dim despair.  7
  Passed, like a sweet but transient dream.  8
  Ravenous as a prairie’s fire.  9
            Evanished like a blink
Of starlight ere the mind can think.
