acantha commented on the word leafmeal
...as the heart grows older
It will come to such sights colder
By and by, nor spare a sigh
Though worlds of wanwood leafmeal lie;
And yet you will weep know why.
smells like fall

acantha commented on the word lambent
Foaled of the white sea-horses,
Washed in the lambent waters of the sun.

acantha commented on the word samarkand
We are the Pilgrims, master; we shall go
Always a little further: it may be
Beyond that last blue mountain barred with snow
Across that angry or that glimmering sea.
White on a throne or guarded in a cave
There lives a prophet who can understand
Why men were born: but surely we are brave
Who take the Golden Road to Samarkand.
acantha commented on the word abracadabrant
I found this word several years ago in a dictionary of archaic English; its definition was given as something marvelous or dazzlingly good.
