Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Phineas Fletcher
  Black as starless night.  1
Look as it is with some true April day,
Whose various weather stores the world with flowers;
The sun his glorious beams doth fair display,
Then rains and shines again, and straight it lowers,
And twenty changes in one hour doth prove;
So, and more changing is a woman’s love.
  Moving like heaven still in the self-same moving.  3
  Vanished like an empty shade.  4
  White as molten glass.  5
