Frank J. Wilstach, comp. A Dictionary of Similes. 1916.

William King

Everlasting as the sun.

Fickle as the flood.

Fierce as the hydra.

Fit, like wheel to nave, or joint to spit.

Fresh as Aurora’s blushing morn.

Love is as hot as pepper’d brandy.

Like bullrushes on side of brook,
Or aspen leaf, her joints all shook.

Tame as a cat.
