Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Aaron Hill
 
  Fruitful as the full-grown year.  1
  Gone, like smoke dissolved in air.  2
  Innocent as sleep.  3
  Lively as the smiling day.  4
  Melt like straggling snow that falls on fire.  5
  Mild as sighing saints.  6
  Noiseless as night’s soft shade.  7
  Moves obscurely like the hand of fate.  8
  Rapid as the ever-wheeling sun.  9
  Rough as nutmeg-graters.  10
  Soft as pity, and as blest.  11
  Soft as upper air.  12
  Sweet as new-blown breath of opening flow’rs.  13
  Wit is like love—the softest is the best.  14
