Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
William Knox
 
  Follow each other, like surge upon surge.  1
The multitude goes, like the flower and the weed,
That wither away to let others succeed.
  2
  Mingle … like sunshine and rain.  3
Oh, why should the spirit of mortal be proud?
Like a swift-fleeting meteor, a fast flying cloud,
A flash of the lightning, a break of the wave,
Man passes from life to his rest in the grave.
  4
  Speeds from the earth like a bird on the wing.  5
