Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Thomas Ashe
A sweet bewildering pain,
Like flowers in the wind and rain.
  As fair as summer roses.  2
  Fluctuated like a stormy sea, urged by the secret Furies.  3
  Follow’d her desire, as sunlight tracks the shadow of a cloud.  4
  Glided like a flame of wind-blown fire.  5
  Green as a leaf.  6
  Happy as the sunlight.  7
  Lips, as smooth and tender … as rose-leaves in a coppice wild.  8
  Noiseless as the sunlight.  9
  Turn’d, as a vessel holds to sea, when near a Siren strand.  10
  Weak as unfledged nestling in the falcon’s grip.  11
  Like a cowslip, growing wild.  12
