Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
John Scott
  Calm as the clear evening after vernal rains.  1
  Flown like the light clouds of a Summer’s day.  2
                Dreadful sounds,
Loud as tides that burst their bounds.
  Sublime … like the sun’s fir’d flame.  4
  Various as an April day.  5
Welcome … as dewy cherries to the taste in June,
As shady lanes to travelers at noon.
