Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Reginald Heber
 
Gone like the locust band, when whirlwinds bear
Their flimsy legions through the waste of air.
  1
                Hovering near,
Like some base vulture in the battle’s rear.
  2
  Mild as summer’s mildest shower.  3
  Resounds like Sylvan revelry.  4
  Restless as the winter storm.  5
  Sink like fall of summer eve.  6
