Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
William Walsh
 
  Calm as Neptune on the Halcyon seas.  1
Love’s like a torch which, if secur’d from blasts,
Will fainter burn, but then it longer lasts:
Expos’d to storms of jealousy and doubt,
The blaze grows greater, but ’tis sooner out.
