Simon & Garfunkel lyrics are full of similes, metaphors and striking images. One in particular is "Poem on the Underground Wall."

Yes, I agree, but the lyrics are all Simon's.

Joni Mitchell has some nice ones. "Both Sides Now" is pretty exquisite.

And Woody Guthrie:

And I went walking that ribbon of highway
And saw above me that endless skyway
I saw below me the golden valley
This land was made for you and me


But these are almost random selections, since I think there's a vast reservoir of magnificent images to be found in songs.
