Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Alexander Barclay
 
  Gape as it were dogs for a bone.  1
  Humble as is a lamb.  2
  Joyned as burre to burre.  3
  Shine as Phœbus doth in a May morning.  4
  Smellynge as the rose ay fresh and redolent.  5
  Still as one in sleep.  6
  Straight as a die.  7
  To go through me like water through a sieve.  8
  Unprofitable as smoke.  9
  Unstable as the wind.  10
