Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Edward Lovibond
 
Dear delusions, fairy charms,
As fancy dreams in virtue’s arms.
  1
  Firm as the oak on rocky heights.  2
  As warm and graceful as May.  3
Mild as the zephyr, like zephyr that throws
Its sweets on the sweet-breathing May.
  4
  Flows … as proudly as Tiber by Rome.  5
  He sighs like David’s son for Sheba’s queen.  6
  Spread like an ocean.  7
