Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Charles Stuart Calverley
 
  Artless, as Eve yet unbeguiled.  1
  Blubbering like a seal.  2
  Brainless as chimpanzees.  3
  Brisk as bees that settle on a summer rose’s petal.  4
  Slowly disappearing, like a day dream.  5
  Flash like a rocket.  6
  Fleet is his foot as the wild roe-buck’s.  7
  A maiden’s heart is as champagne, ever struggling upward.  8
  Prattled like a babbling brook.  9
  Regal as Juno.  10
  Rosy as pinks.  11
  Straight as a beadle’s wand.  12
  Yellow, like April bees.  13
