Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
William Browne
  Lovely as all excellence.  1
  Pure as blossoms, which are newly blowne.  2
Like yealow flowres and grasse farre off, in one;
Or like the mixture nature doth display
Upon the quaint wings of the popinjay.
  Softly like a stream of oil.  4
  Thick as starlings in a fen.  5
The rose, like ready youth, enticing stands,
And would be cropt if it might choose the hands.
