Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
James A. Hillhouse
 
  Capacious as the sky.  1
The generations pass, like autumn’s fruits,
Garnered, consumed, and springing fresh to life.
  2
  Strong as the enginery that works the world.  3
            Wild as if creation’s ruins
Were heaped in one immeasurable chain
Of barren mountains, beaten by the storms
Of everlasting winter.
