Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes.
Sir William Schwenk Gilbert
Blind as death itself.
Calm as a lake in heaven.
Curled up in his heart, like a little squirrel in its nest.
As dear to me as my own right hand.
Free as a mountain bird.
Free as a tethered ass.
Helpless as the dead.
Imperceptibly as old age comes on.
As innocent as a new-laid egg.
Pert as a school-girl well can be.
Pure as the summer sun of Southern heaven.
Start, like a frightened roe.
Sweet as the new-mown hay.
Thrills like a thing of song and gladness.
True as the sun.
Trustful as innocence.
Like a bed of stinging nettles.
Welcome as flowers that bloom in the spring.
