Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes. 1916.

Paul Whitehead

Fix’d as oaks.

Like the young lion wounded by the dart,
Whose fury kindled at the galling smart;
The hero rouses with redoubled rage,
Flies on the foe, and foams upon the stage.

Manners, like fashions, still from courts descend,
And what the great begin, the vulgar end.
