Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
James Cawthorn
 
  Deadly as the sting of satire.  1
  Deep as the murmurs of the falling floods.  2
  Delusive as a midnight dream.  3
  As keen as anguish.  4
  Loose as … negligence.  5
Then sinks, as beauty fades and passion cools,
The scorn of coxcombs, and the jest of fools.
  6
  Soft as love.  7
  Sweet as the warbles of the vocal woods.  8
  Wild and capricious as the wind and wave.  9
