Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
  Ascends like the hoof of a camel.  1
  Descends like the foot of a crow.  2
Like listless topers singing o’er their cups.
  Glowed red, like the ishrik seeds, fresh fallen, unbroken, bright.  4
  Sweet as that which is forbidden.  5
                Trembles …
As the distracted herd, when they the lion meet.
  Unchanged, like the cat which became blind, and still hankered after mice.  7
