Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Richard Glover
 
  Crashing … like thunder nigh, whose burst of ruin strikes the shatter’d ear with horror.  1
  Dark as Pluto’s palace.  2
  Sullen, fix’d like some old oak’s deep-rooted, knotted trunk, which hath endur’d the tempest-breathing months of thrice a hundred winters, yet remains unshaken.  3
  Fresh as the May-blown rose.  4
  Like Diana pure.  5
  Sweet as the vernal flow’r in early prime.  6
  Unshaken like a Thracian hill.  7
