Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
David Mallet
Her bloom was like the springing flower,
That sips the silver dew;
The rose was budded in her cheeks,
Just opening to the view.
            Debas’d by gross alloy:
As gold in mines lies mix’d with dirt and clay.
His face was like an April morn
Clad in a wintry cloud.
  As honor, just.  4
  Pale as ascending ghost cast back to day.  5
  As truth, sincere.  6
  Soft as the sighings of the gale, that wakes the flowery year.  7
