  SIMILES  

As wet as a fish--as dry as a bone;
As live as a bird--as dead as a stone;
As plump as a partridge--as poor as a rat;
As strong as a horse--as weak as a cat;
As hard as a flint--as soft as a mole;
As white as a lily--as black as a coal;
As plain as a pike-staff--as rough as a bear;
As light as a drum--as free as the air;
As heavy as lead--as light as a feather;
As steady as time--uncertain as weather;
As hot as an oven--as cold as a frog;
As gay as a lark--as sick as a dog;
As slow as the tortoise--as swift as the wind;
As true as the Gospel--as false as mankind;
As thin as a herring--as fat as a pig;
As proud as a peacock--as blithe as a grig;
As savage as tigers--as mild as a dove;
As stiff as a poker--as limp as a glove;
As blind as a bat--as deaf as a post;
As cool as a cucumber--as warm as a toast;
As flat as a flounder--as round as a ball;
As blunt as a hammer--as sharp as an awl;
As red as a ferret--as safe as the stocks;
As bold as a thief--as sly as a fox;
As straight as an arrow--as crook'd as a bow;
As yellow as saffron--as black as a sloe;
As brittle as glass--as tough as gristle;
As neat as my nail--as clean as a whistle;
As good as a feast--as had as a witch;
As light as is day--as dark as is pitch;
As brisk as a bee--as dull as an ass;
As full as a tick--as solid as brass.
