Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Robert Blair
 
Dark as was chaos, ere the infant Sun
Was rolled together, or had tried his beams
Athwart the gloom profound.
  1
  Drop off like leaves in autumn.  2
  Meek as the turtle-dove.  3
  Pure as the silver from the crucible.  4
  Sullen, like lamps in sepulchres.  5
  Tame and humble, like a child that’s whipp’d.  6
  Stand thick as dewdrops on the bells of flowers.  7
  Their aims as various, as the roads they take in journeying thro’ life.  8
                Visits
Like those of angels, short and far between.
