Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Amélie Rives
 
Thy mind is like a mirror swung in space,
And whirling on a thread. Now it reflecteth
The heavens, and now the earth. Now doth the lightning
Write hieroglyphs upon it, and anon
Some deep-sea monster glooms it with his bulk.
  1
  Smirk … like a dog scratching his ear.  2
