Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Joseph Rodman Drake
  Away like a glance of thought.  1
  Fleet as the swallow cuts the drift.  2
  Flies like a feather in the blast.  3
  Away like a glance of thought he flew.  4
Glimmers … like starry twinklers that momently break
Through the rifts of the gathering tempest’s rack.
  Pure as the angel forms above.  6
  Smooth as sheet of polished brass.  7
As swift as the glance of the arrowy lance
That the storm spirit flings from high.
