Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Nathaniel Cotton
 
  As active as the roe.  1
  Fair as cygnet’s down.  2
            Fancy, like a spright,
Prefers the silent scenes of night.
  3
  Calmly retire, like evening light.  4
  Serene … like envoys from the skies.  5
  Care stings like pois’nous asps to fury wrought.  6
  Swift as Care.  7
  Truthful as the genial spring.  8
