Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Edmund Clarence Stedman
Calm as the blind who have not seen the light,
The deaf who hear no precious voice.
  A forehead calm as fate.  2
As the stars’ mountain-tops be,
As the pearl, in the depths of the sea,
From the portionless king that wears it.
  Sweet as the songs of homestead birds.  4
  Thick as swallows after storms.  5
