Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Thomas Lovell Beddoes
  Blue violet, like Pandora’s eye.  1
  Bright as midnight’s brightest eyes.  2
  Your clutch is like the grasping of a wave.  3
  Deep as midnight’s starry treasure.  4
Every heart was glad,
As if the taxes were abolished.
  One snowy cloud hangs, like an avalanche of frozen light upon the peak of night’s cerulean Alp.  6
  Hollow as is the armour of a ghost.  7
  Low as zephyr, telling secrets to his rose.  8
  Secret as rocks under sea.  9
