Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Alfred Edward Housman
 
  Dismal as a wet Derby day.  1
The steady drummer
Drumming like a noise in dreams.
  2
  Glitter like an angel’s ladder.  3
  Manful as the man of stone.  4
  Old operas are like old bonnets: they ought to be remodelled, retrimmed from time to time.  5
  As reviving as an epigram.  6
  Shone like an aureole round the head of some modern saint.  7
