Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Edmund Gosse
 
Mary with her cheerful eyes,
Like heartsease where a dew drop lies.
  1
  Azure eyes, like stars upon the river’s brink.  2
  The Past is like a funeral gone by. The Future comes like an unwelcome guest.  3
  Ribanded and garlanded like a thyrsus.  4
  Lips as rounded as a cherry.  5
  Lips like warm carnations.  6
  The Past is like a funeral gone by. The Future comes like an unwelcome guest.  7
  Roused, like homeward wishes in wanderer’s heart.  8
  Silent like a glacier bed.  9
  Unseen, like the wind.  10
Arms untwined, like some twin stream
That parts at last in hastening to the sea.
  11
  Warbled like a happy bird.  12
  Weak as an eddy in the sandy wind.  13
  Winter, like a felon ghost, that with its viewless presence chills the blood.  14
