Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Robert Jephson
  Bright as ruddy meteors through the sky.  1
  Expectation, like a fiery steed, anticipates the course, and pants to hear the sprightly signal start him for the goal.  2
  Fear on fear, like light reflected from the dancing wave, visits all places, but can rest in none.  3
  Firm as Atlas.  4
  Inviolable as recorded oaths.  5
  Resistless as a flash that strikes from Heaven.  6
  Shaking like pent up winds.  7
  Sped like plagues and pestilences.  8
