Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Ella Wheeler Wilcox
 
  Clear as the crystal flood.  1
  Curling like a kinked up ostrich feather.  2
  Eyes like a bright blue-bell.  3
  Fled like a flash of light.  4
  They float in its rythmic measure like leaves on a summer stream.  5
  Modest as a flower.  6
  Rattled like shutters in a blast.  7
  Soft as a lady’s hand.  8
  Sprang like an arrow shot straight from the bow.  9
  She starts like a sleeper who wakes from dreaming.  10
  Still as the dawn.  11
