Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Ariosto
 
  Upon her tender cheek the mingled dye is scattered, of the lily and the rose.  1
  Firm as the budding fruit.  2
The spotless maid is like the blooming rose
Which on its native stem unsullied grows.
  3
  A death-like paleness … like one who trembling waits his fatal doom.  4
  Shining like glowing flame.  5
