Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
William Whitehead
  Oaks, like arts, a length of years demand.  1
Complaints of times when merit wants reward
Descend like similes from bard to bard.
  As firm as rock in ocean.  3
  Fools, like apes, are mimics from their birth.  4
  Mild as the opening morn’s serenest ray.  5
  Mild as the close of summer’s softest day.  6
Titles and birth, like diamonds from the mine,
Must by your worth be polish’d ere they shine.
