Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Henry Hart Milman
  Hollow as the unbowell’d winds.  1
Steps … light as though a winged angel trod,
Over earth’s flowers, and feared to brush away,
Their delicate hues.
  Shrink, as from a serpent in a knot of flowers.  3
  Shrivelled like a burning scroll.  4
  Thy smiles, like sunflowers in the golden light they love.  5
  Soothing as the gale of eve.  6
  Vain and unprofitable, as is the sunshine to a dead man’s eyes.  7
