Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Fitz-Greene Halleck
 
  Calmly, as to a night’s repose, like flowers at set of sun.  1
Then saw in death his eyelids close
Calmly, as to a night’s repose,
Like flowers at set of sun.
  2
  Dim as the wandering stars that burst in the blue of the Summer heaven.  3
  Driven, like flower-seeds by the four winds sown.  4
            Eyelids close
Calmly, as to a night’s repose,
Like flowers at set of sun.
  5
  Happy as a Sunday in Paris, full of song, and dance, and laughter.  6
  The voice sounds as a prophet’s word.  7
  Strong as earth’s first kings.  8
  Upsoaring like an eagle’s wings.  9
