Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Richard Lovelace
 
  Blushes like a virgin.  1
  Bright as the argent-horned mornes.  2
  Certaine as wayes unto the blinde.  3
  Chaste as th’ Arabian bird, who all the ayr denyes.  4
  Chaste as the air.  5
Cold as the breath of winds that blow
To silver shot descending snow.
  6
  Fair as original light first from the chaos shot.  7
  Gentle as chaines that honor binde.  8
  Groans like a cannon-ball.  9
  She’s as kind as new faln April showers.  10
  Silent as the ev’nings ayre.  11
  Swift as the thunderbolt.  12
