Lines on Reading Frank J. Wilstach's

As neat as wax, as good as new, 
As true as steel, as truth is true, 
Good as a sermon, keen as hate, 
Full as a tick, and fixed as fate--

Brief as a dream, long as the day, 
Sweet as the rosy morn in May, 
Chaste as the moon, as snow is white, 
Broad as barn doors, and new as sight--

Useful as daylight, firm as stone, 
Wet as a fish, dry as a bone, 
Heavy as lead, light as a breeze-- 
Frank Wilstach's book of similies.
