Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Ancient Ballad of Hindustan
 
  Fair as lotus when the morn kisses its opening petals red.  1
  Smiled, as mountains smile to see the spring.  2
  Torture … like poisoned sword.  3
Words … as sweet as founts that murmur low,
To one who in the deserts drear,
With parched tongue moves faint and slow.
