Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Isaac Watts
 
  Active as the sun.  1
  Beat, like the pulse, perpetual.  2
  Serenely calm as summer evenings.  3
  Fervent as glorious noon.  4
  Gently, as morning-dews distil.  5
  Gloomy, like a gathered tempest.  6
Our headlong lusts, like a young fiery horse,
Start and flee raging in a violent course.
  7
  Serene as light.  8
  Steady as the pole.  9
  As the deluge strong.  10
  Swift as the motions of desire.  11
  Various as the moon.  12
