Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
Maurice Thompson
Bubble, bubble, flows the stream
Like an old tune through a dream.
  Gleeful as a brook or bird.  2
Lurking like a savage thing
Crouching for a treacherous spring.
  Shone like silver threads in tangles blown.  4
  Sweet, as when Venus and Love went hand in hand.  5
