Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
William Byrd
 
  Our conversation with the ladies, like whip syllabub, was very pretty, but had nothing in it.  1
  Deceitful like the devil.  2
  Soft as the murmurs of a virgin’s sigh.  3
  Swift as Jove’s lightning.  4
  Triumph like a king.  5
