Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Eugene Fitch Ware
  Folded up as folds a primrose when the gates of day are shut.  1
They glitter in my fancy like the distant multihedral
Steeples, domes and sunlit turrets of some beautiful cathedral.
  Peel, like slippery elms in spring.  3
  As snug as a snag in a bog.  4
  Volatile, like autumn leaves.  5
