Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
  Her brow … is like the young moon.
Her brows like bended bows do stand,
Threatening with piercing frowns to kill
All that approach with eye or hand
These sacred cherries to come nigh.
            —English Ballad
Her browe was like the mountain snae
Gilt by the morning beam.
            —Scottish Ballad
  His brow was like the deep when tempest toss’d.
            —Lord Byron
  Brows like cloudless day.
            —Eliza Cook
  Her brow is like the snaw-drift.
            —William Douglas
  Brows—thin like the stroke of a pen.
            —Douglas Hyde (Love Songs of Connacht)
  Thy brow like smooth Bandhûka-leaves.
