Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
James Hogg
  Her cheek of beauty blushed like rose-bud in the rain.  1
  Burst frae their bounds like fiends of hell.  2
The stars of heaven fell calmly away,
Like flakes of snow in a winter day.
O, love, love, love!
Love is like a dizziness;
It winna let a poor body
Gang about his bizziness.
  Red as the beacon-light.  5
  As stubborn as Muirkirk iron.  6
  Yellow as cowslips.  7
