Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Torquato Tasso
 
                Attending,
As if their lives were on his words depending.
  1
His threatening eyes
Like flaming torches burned.
  2
            Faithful, from day to day,
As Hesperus, that leads the sun his way.
  3
  Fierce as flaming fire.  4
  Rage … like boiling liquor in a seething pot.  5
  Reels like a falling cedar.  6
                Shake,
As winds tall cedars toss on mountains hoar.
  7
                Slain and lost,
Like a sweet flower nipp’d with untimely frost.
  8
  Her rich locks spread like sunbeams on the wind.  9
  As swift as fiery lightning kindled new.  10
  Unstaid as rolling waves in ocean flood.  11
