Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
John Hay
 
  Dreadful as a gathering storm.  1
  Joyous, like a rising star.  2
The little man skimmed down the hill,
Like a swallow down the wind.

Wine is like rain: when it falls on the mire it but makes it the fouler,
But when it strikes the good soil it wakes it to beauty and bloom.
