Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Walter von der Vogelweide
  My best years have fled away, like dreams, or like a minstrel’s lay.  1
Time, like the earth with flowers bespread
In youthful spring, is dark and
Dead when age and cares come on
And friends and pleasures are all gone.
