Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Coventry Patmore
 
Her beauties were like sunlit snows,
Flush’d but not warm’d with my desire.
  1
  Fresh as Spring.  2
  Prattles like a child at play.  3
  Pure as a bride’s blush.  4
Pure as the permeating fires
That smoulder in the opal’s veins.
  5
  Shock my spirit … like the vibration of a bell.  6
                Sweet and white
As the most heretofore sin-spotted Soul.
