Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
Muse
 
The muse, like mortal females, may be woo’d:
In turns she’ll seem a Paphian, or a prude;
Fierce as a bride when first she feels affright,
Mild as the same upon the second night;
Wild as the wife of alderman or peer,
Now for his grace, and now a grenadier.
            —Lord Byron
