Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Edward Moore
  Cunning, like a miner, safely and unseen.  1
  Fair as the Moon’s unclouded light.  2
  Love, like arm’d Death, is strong.  3
’Tis love, like the sun, that gives light to the year,
The sweetest of blessings that life can give;
Our pleasures it brightens, drives sorrow away,
Gives joy to the night, and enlivens the day.
And similes in each dull line,
Like glow-worms in the dark should shine.
