Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
James Thomson
  Blind like tragic masks of stone.  1
  Cruel as death.  2
Like the sun wading through the misty sky.
  Dire as when friends are rankled into foes.  4
  Like pansies dark i’ the June o’ the year, grow my Love’s glad eyes.  5
  Full as the summer rose.  6
  Hungry as the grave.  7
  Loose as the breeze that plays along the downs.  8
As is the lily or the mountain snow.
  Serene and pleased a look as Patience ere put on.  10
  Unstained and pure as the lily or the mountain snow.  11
